Antitrichia curtipendula – endangered moss in the bryoflora of the Polish Carpathian Mts.

Nowadays Antitrichia curtipendula belongs to the rarest and most endangered forest epiphytic mosses in the Polish part of the Carpathians. In this area it is known from 62 localities located in 30 ATMOS grid squares. Mostly the localities are of the historical character, for since 1990 A. curtipendula has been observed only in the Babia Góra massif and in the Bieszczady Zachodnie range. The taxon is an indicator of well-preserved mountain primeval beech forest, where it grows mainly as an epiphyte on Fagus sylvatica bark. In the paper, a map of its distribution, ecological preferences and full index of localities is presented. A. curtipendula in the area of the Polish part of the Carpathians is critically endangered species (CR category).
