Moss diversity for the Tropical Andean countries (Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia) is estimated at 76 families, 362 genera and 2089 taxa at species and infraspecific level. This catalog, primarily specimen-based, includes for each accepted species altitudinal distribution in the treated countries and its world distribution. Two new combinations, Acroporium esmeraldicum (Müll. Hal.) W. R. Buck and Pseudocrossidium granulosum (Thér.) S. P. Churchill are made. The following species are new synonyms of the species in brackets: Coscinodon pseudocribrosus Hastings [=Coscinodon bolivianus Broth.], Daltonia fenestrellata D. G. Griffin [=Daltonia brevinervis E. B. Bartram], Lepidopilidium synoicum Herzog [=Lepidopilidium divaricatum (Dozy & Molk.) Broth.], Leucodon peruvianus Broth. [=Leucodon curvirostris Hampe], Neckera trabeculata Herzog [=Neckera scabridens Müll. Hal.], Papillaria pseudofunalis Müll. Hal. [=Papillaria imponderosa (Taylor) Broth.], Papillaria pseudosinuata Müll. Hal. [=Meteorium sinuatum (Müll. Hal.) Müll. Hal.], Papillaria subsquamatula Müll. Hal.
