Abstract: Based on extensive investigation and specimen identification of bryophytes in recent years, four new records of Sphagnaceae species have been reported for Xinjiang Province, namely Sphagnum angustifolium, S.cuspidatulum, S.cuspidatum and S.russowii. The major distinguishing morphological characteristics and geographic distribution of these species are discussed in this paper. The key to species of Sphagnaceae in Xinjiang has been provided. In addition, the geographic distribution of Sphagnaceae in Xinjiang was expanded to include Altai City, Qinghe County, Fuhai County and Habahe County, in addition to Hanas National Nature Reserve in Buerjin County, as previously reported. The results provide additional information on Sphagnaceae for bryoflora of Xinjiang.
