A limited number of mosses have been studied regarding antioxidant activity and enzyme inhibition effects. In the present study, the phytochemical content, antioxidant, and enzyme inhibition properties of the ether extracts from T.J.Kop.. were investigated as promising bryophyte sources. The ether extracts of had the highest flavonoid content (52.41 ± 0.52, Rutin equivalent), and had the highest total phenolic content (25.84 ± 0.23, Gallic acid equivalent). While the had the highest ABTS (mg TE/g extract) 6.60 ± 0.4); showed the highest metal chelating capacity (mg EDTA/g extract) with the values of 51.46 ± 0.26. In the enzyme activity tests, almost all values of the species were closed the each other, but was exhibited higher tyrosinase activity (mg/KAE/g extract) with 48.64 ± 1.02. The results have indicated for the first time the potential importance of the selected mosses.
