Description Palaeoecological analyses of old peat deposits can bring information on the past distribution of bryophyte species. In this paper, we report historical occurrence of fen mosses that are currently rare and declining in Central Europe. This paper brings new data about the presence of fen mosses in old peat deposits in (i) the foreststeppe zone of Ukraine (Drepanocladus trifarius, Meesia triquetra, Scorpidium scorpioides), (ii) the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands in the Czech Republic (Helodium blandowii, Paludella squarrosa, S. scorpioides), and (iii) the Malé Karpaty Mts in Slovakia (S. scorpioides). The records suggest common occurrence of the mosses in the study regions during the Late Glacial and Early Holocene.
