This paper summarises the recent knowledge about Sphagnum dominated mires and other peatmoss occurrences of North-Hungary, on the basis of literature, herbarium data and skill of authors. The invetigated area, accurately the Northern Mountain Range and the northern part of Great Hungarian Plain, contains numerous mires (bogs, intermediate mires, swamps), fens with peatmosses and other Sphagnum occurrences (on wet places, on acidic soil in forests). There are 12 areas, which contain Sphagna, some of these contain only one mire or small peatmoss patch and others contain numeros mires or Sphagnum occurrences. Since 1930’s lot of investigations (e.g. floristical, coenological, zoological and palaeoecological) were made on these habitats and in the last decade also many new started (and partly finished). It is timely to summarise these data, results, maps etc. to initiate new researches.
