Pohlia lescuriana (Sull.) Ochi and Oleolophozia perssonii (H.Buch & S.W.Arnell) L.Soderstr., De Roo & Hedd. have been identified as new to Turkey and South-West Asia, following a recent bryological excursion in Giresun province of Turkey. The genus Oleolophozia L.Soderstr., De Roo & Hedd. is also new to Turkey. In this paper, brief descriptions, illustrations, information about geographic distribution, ecology and comparisons with morphologically similar taxa are given. A key to Pohlia Hedw. taxa in Turkey is added.
