The genus Anomobryum is represented in Russia by three species. A. concinnatum is circum-holarctic and known from the Caucasus, southern Siberia, Taimyr, Yakutia, Russian Far East (from Primorsky Territory to Chukotka), and was recorded also from Kola Peninsula. A. julaceum s. str. was not found among many herbarium collections from Russia that we studied. Mainly European, A. bavaricum was recently reported from Transbaikalia and is also newly found in Primorsky Territory and Verkhoyansk Range in Yakutia. Temperate Asian A. nitidum is newly found in Russia with a wide range, from Altai Mts. to Transbaikalia and also in the Far East, from Primorsky Territory to Commander Islands.
