The Moss herbarium is believed to contain 80 000 specimens. The majority of the material is Norwegian, but the herbarium also holds important collections from Bouvet Island and Antarctica (T. Engelskjøn). Important collectors are E. Jørgensen, B.B.L. Kaalaas, J.J. Havås and T. Lillefosse. As of May 2005 data of c.10 000 of the specimens have been recorded, among them the Norwegian red listed mosses.
