Abstract: A checklist of the mosses of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park was compiled from species reported from the park in various reports and publications, and from specimens of park origin housed at the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Herbarium and the Bernice P. Bishop Museum in Honolulu. Field surveys were conducted in the specialized habitats of geothermal features and lava tube entrances to search for new moss species. Two preliminary surveys were also conducted in the new Kahuku unit. One hundred thirteen taxa (110 species, one subspecies, and two varieties) are on the current checklist based on 111 taxa collected from within the park boundaries and three collected near the park. Six of these species are invasive or potentially invasive species warranting management concern. In total, 43 percent of all moss species in the Hawaiian Islands are represented at the park.
