      The affinities of the hepatic floras of New Zealand, Western Melanesia, Borneo, the Philippines, Bhutan, mainland China, Taiwan, Japan and Korea were studied by the Kroeber's percentage of similarity. The study is mainly based on recent check-lists and consists of 2906 hepatic species in 250 genera and 62 families. Four main areas of affinity can be noticed: 1) Australia and New Zealand, 2) New Guinea and adjacent areas, 3) Malaysia, and 4) Sino-Japanese area and Bhutan.

      Australia and New Zealand are noticed to have a strikingly different hepatic flora with many endemic genera and species compared with the other areas. This is explained by their Gondwanalandic origin and the long isolation from the other areas. Western Melanesia is a transgression area having some Gondwanalandic elements in the high elevations and a lot of Laurasian tropical elements, which migrated from Indomalaysia in the recently uplifted lowland areas. This area has no endemic genera. Malaysia has many modern and widespread hepatic genera e.g. in Lejeuneaceae including endemics. Eastern Asia has endemic and relict genera of Gondwanalandic origin derived via Indian and Cathaysian Plate rafting. The Eastern Asian hepatics have affinities to the Philippines via China Sea connections.

      Cryptoleptodon pluvinii (Brid.) Broth. (Pilotrichum pluvinii Brid.) replaces the well-known name C. flexuosus (Harv.) Ren. & Card. (Neckera flexuosa Harv. in Hook., syn. nov., here lectotypified). The combinations Cryptoleptodon longisetus (Mont.) Enroth (Leptodon longisetus Mont. in Webb & Bertholot), Leptodon fuciformis (Brid.) Enroth (Hypnum fuciforme Brid.), and Forrstroemia canariensis (Ren. & Card.) Enroth (Thamnium canariense Ren. & Card.) are made. Pinnatella revoluta Biz. is synonymized with Cryptoleptodon longisetus, Leptodon boryanus Schimp. ex Besch. with L. fuciformis, and L. dillenii Lindb. with Forsstroemia trichomitria (Hedw.) Lindb. subsp. trichomitria. Cryptoleptodon Ren. & Card. and Forsstroemia Lindb. are considered closely related and they are placed in the Leptodontaceae (Musci). Illustrations of Cryptoleptodon longisetus, Forrstroemia canariensis and Leptodon fuciformis are provided, and the total range of the former species is mapped.

      Nine species of bryophytes are discussed, five of which, viz., Chenia rhizophylla, Dolotortula mniifolia, Fissidens leptophyllus, Porotrichum lancifrons, and Sphaerothecium reconditum, are new to Brazil. Additional distributional data within Brazil are given for the remaining four species, viz., Luisierella barbula, Splachnobryum obtusum, and Tortula fragilis, and Odontolejeunea rhomalea.

      A revision of all taxa of Campylopus reported for E Asia (China, Korea, Japan and Taiwan) revealed thirteen species and two subspecies. Campylopus gracilis (Mitt.) Jaeg. has proven to be synonymous with C. subulatus Schimp. in Rabenh. and is reported here as new to Japan. Campylopus gracilentus Card. described from Taiwan is synonymous with the SE-Asian C. laxitextus Lac. Campylopus fragilis ssp. goughii (Mitt.) Frahm (C. goughii (Mitt.) Jaeg.) and C. fragilis ssp. zollingerianus (C. zollingerianus (C. Müll.) Bosch & Lac.), C. crispifolius Bartr., C. boswellii (C. Müll.) Par. are reported as new to China. Campylopus involutus (C. Müll.) Jaeg. is synonymous with C. ericoides (Griff.) Jaeg. Campylopus yakushimensis Sak. and C. japonicus Broth. var. fuscoviridis Card. have proved to be inseparable from C. atrovirens De Not. and are regarded as synonyms of the latter. Campylopus atrovirens is reported for the first time with sporophytes. Lectotypes have been chosen for Campylopus ericoides, C. involutus and C. gracilentus.

      The catalogue includes all the mosses (Sphagnopsida, Andreaeopsida, Bryopsida) so far recorded from Peru. It contains 889 species and many infraspecific taxa, belonging to 244 genera and 62 families. Basionyms, synonyms and the location of type specimens are given where these are Peruvian in origin, together with the altitudinal range of each species. Annotations are chiefly concerned with taxonomy and nomenclature. Two illegitime homonyms are replaced by nomina nova: Puiggariopsis nom. nov. ≡ Puiggariella Broth. 1908 hom. illeg. and Saitoella nom. nov. ≡ Saitoa Zand. 1989 hom. illeg. Four new combinations are proposed: Bryum worthleyi (Robins.) comb. nov. [≡ Anomobryum worthleyi Robins. 1967]; Phyllodon ligulaefolius (Bartr.) comb. nov. [≡ Glossadelphus ligulaefolius Bartr. 1946]; Puiggariopsis aurifolia (Mitt.) comb. nov. [Ctenidium aurifolium Mitt. 1869]; Saitoella peruviana (Williams) comb. nov. [Globulina peruviana Williams 1916]. Molendoa guentheri Broth. 1931 (syn. nov.) is a new synonym of Molendoa sendtneriana (B.S.G.) Limpr. A systematic synopsis concerning the genera and the taxa of higher rank is provided. The order Bartramiales (Frey) ordo et stat. nov. of the Bryidae is based on the circumscription of the superordo Bartramianae 1977.

      5 lichen species from the Volga river basin were examined for their chemistry. The quantities of total, neutral, phospho-, and glycolipids were estimated. Individual lipid classes in the phospholipid and glycolipid fractions were studied. Fatty acids present in separate lipid classes as well as in various fractions and total lipids, were detected using thin layer, column and gas liquid chromatography techniques.

      The Lesser Sunda Islands are a most interesting, geologically and ecologically diverse island group forming a bridge between Asia and Australia. Nevertheless, they have been ignored greatly by bryologists until recently. From 1981 onwards rather sizeable collections have been made in Bali, Lombok and Flores. These and several smaller collections have been identified as far as possible, and identifications of other collections known from the area have been tested. As a result, 367 species are listed, including 230 new to the area (5 being documented for the first time from the phytogeographical region Malesia). In addition, several species are reported as new to other parts of Malesia. Eight names are reduced to synonyms, and three new combinations are proposed (Acroporium strepsiphyllum (Mont.) Tan, Pseudobarbella wallichii (Thwait. & Mitt.) Touw, Symphysodontella splendens (Reinw. & Hornsch.) Magill & Touw). For each species all collections known from the area are listed (including those known from literature only), together with brief notes on their habitat in the Lesser Sunda Islands, and on various other subjects where pertinent. Introductory paragraphs present information on the composition, geological history and climate of the island group, and on the altitudinal zonation of the vegetation, nowadays greatly influenced by human activity. Statistics of bryofloristic research show that the present knowledge of the moss flora of the Lesser Sunda Islands is fragmentary. The information available relates almost exclusively to small parts of some islands belonging to the volcanic inner arc. Most urgently needed are collections from the southern, relatively dry, non-volcanic islands (Timor in particular) in order to establish the relation of their moss flora to the floras of the inner arc and Australia. At present, their moss flora has remained virtually unknown.

      The new genus Bryokhutuliinia is described. It includes Jurassic species B. jurassica Ignatov spec. nova from Mongolia and Cretaceous B. ingodensis (Srebrodolskaya) Ignatov comb. nova (Muscites ingodensis Srebrodolskaya) from Transbaikalia Region. The combination of the lack of costa, limbate leaf, elongated cells and distichous leaves is unique in mosses and does not allow to relate this new genus to any of extant groups. Both species of Bryokhutuliinia are known only as imprints of sterile leafy shoots.
