In this paper the moss novelties recorded for some Mediterranean islands are presented: two new records for Sicily (Ptychostomum cernuum and Physcomitrium eurystomum), one new record for Ischia in the Neapolitan archipelago (Campylopus brevipilus), one new record for Crete (Trichodon cylindricus) and three new records for Cyprus (myurella julacea, syntrichia subpapillosissima and Grimmia anodon). The occurrence of Schistidium atrofuscum in Cyprus is confirmed. Notes on habitat, Mediterranean distribution and conservation are provided for each species; some morphological remarks on the Cyprus specimens of Myurella julacea and Syntrichia subpapillosissima are given too.
