Arctic-alpine and montane mosses are an important component of the flora in the Gulf of St. Lawrence region, where many species are rare or disjunct from the Arctic or the Western Cordillera. This paper presents an annotated list for 83 species as documentation for conservation work and future studies. Encalypta alpina, Plagiobryum demissum, and Pohlia atropurpurea are reported new for the region. Trichostomum arcticum is reported new for Newfoundland. Occurrence in the Gulf region, global distribution, literature references, and conservation status are given for all taxa.
