Description Bryum klinggraeffii is a widespread small ruderal moss. It inhabits a wide altitudinal gradient, and typically grows on the bare ground of frequently disturbed open habitats. Here we report its first finds for Georgia and simultaneously, we bring new evidence of the species for the Greater Caucasus. The moss was discovered in Racha-Lechkhumi and Kvemo Svaneti Regions in the Greater Caucasus and in Samtskhe-Javakheti Region in the Lesser Caucasus. B. klinggraeffii was found on river gravel bars in various kinds of vegetation successional stages.
