Syntrichia papillosa, an epiphytic propaguliferous member of Pottiaceae is recorded for the first time to the bryophyte flora of Turkey. The specimen was collected from north east of Turkey (prov. Trabzon, Tonya county) on Pyrus sp. with two mosses which hitherto are known only from a single locality of Turkey, Orthotrichum obtusifolium and Orthotrichum rivulare. A description of S. papillosa with illustrations and distribution map for the three species in Turkey is presented.
