Annotated list of 145 mosses collected on the Tardoki-Yani Mt is presented. Annotations provide data on altitudinal distribution of each species, ecology and accompanying species. The specificity of the forest belt in the area comprises the addition of hemiboreal East Asian species to the generally boreal species composition. Brachythecium garovaglioides is newly found in Russia. Other interesting species include Oedipodium griffithianum, Pohlia vexans, Sphagnum alaskense and two tentatively undescribed species of the genera Dicranum and Seligeria; the latter are supplied with additional comments. Twenty nine species are newly reported for the Sikhote-Alin; some of these species have mainly arctic-alpine distribution and are found on the Tardoki-Yani Mt quite far from the area of their continuous distribution.
