Highest species richness was found between 1700-1800 m, because in this interval the studied localities also showed a larger number of different habitats. The most abundant chorological elements were boreal (35% of the species), temperatare (28%) and oceanic (26%). The most relevant species found are Jungermannia jenseniana, a very rare liverwort in the Iberian Peninsula, and two Iberian endemics: Brachythecium dieckii nd Rqcomitrium hespericum.
