An annotated list of hepatics of the Tunkinskiy National Park (on the southern slopes of the Eastern Sayan and Tunka depression, South Siberia) was compiled for the first time based on identification of specimens collected by the authors and some specimens of Siberian collectors. The list includes 75 species, one subspecies and two varieties collected almost exclusively in the forest zone. The distribution and ecology of a number of worldwide rare liverworts (Mesoptychia igiana, M. morrisoncola, Oleolophozia perssonii, Scapania carinthiaca, S. gymnostomophila) is expanded. Androecia of Mesoptychia igiana were found and are described from Russia for the first time. The specific features of the liverwort flora of Tunka National Park are discussed.
