In 2006-2008, I found new localities of Anastrophyllum donnianum and A. saxicola in the Slovakian Tatras (Western Carpathians). These liverwort species had not been reported from Slovakia since 1888, and were classified as extinct. Both are found in this part of Europe in isolated localities in mountains, at the southern limit of their European distribution. Anastrophyllum donnianum is rare in Europe.
