Bucklandiella microcarpa (Hedw.) Bednarek-Ochyra & Ochyra (Racomitrioideae, Grimmiaceae, Bryopsida) is recorded for the first time in Turkey. The specimens were collected from Kaçkar Mountains National Park in Rize province. The nearest localities of this species are in south Carpathians and Ural mountains. Therefore, this new record contributes to a remarkable range extension of this species towards south-west Asia.
