The bryophyte flora was surveyed in western Istria, in the settlement Selina and surrounding area, during spring and summer of 2014. It was recorded 68 mosses and 6 liverworts. Phytogeographically, the most abundant are species of temperate zonobiome, i.e. circumpolar species, regarding eastern limit category. Analysis of bryophyte flora through habitat types has showed that the highest species richness have shadowed rocks and crevices, while the lowest one is recorded on arable land and occasionally flooded soil and moist sediment alongside ponds. Regarding species composition, habitat types are clustered in four basic groups. Based on Ellenberg’s ecological indicator values for light, moisture, reaction of substrate and amount of nutrients, the differences between habitats are explained using methods of descriptive and multivariate statistics.
