We identified 68 bryophytes (4 liverworts, 64 mosses) during three days of sampling five Friends of Sax-Zim Bog (FOSZB) properties and five additional sites within the surrounding 147,000-acre Sax-Zim Bog Important Bird Area in St. Louis County, Minnesota. The landscape types surveyed are loosely categorized as upland, forested wetland, moderate-rich fen, poor fen, restored fen and bog. In total, this survey added 50 species (3 liverworts, 47 mosses) to a previous FOSZB bryophyte species list for a total of 78 bryophyte species (4 liverworts, 74 mosses) documented in the greater Sax-Zim Bog region. Over 20% of the bryophytes found were in the genus Sphagnum. Our updated list of common bryophytes will be used by FOSZB staff for educational purposes to inform FOSZB visitors about local bryoflora.
