Bryophyte Diversity and Evolution <p><strong>Bryophyte Diversity and Evolution </strong>is an international research journal of the <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">International Association of Bryologists</a> (IAB). BDE publishes review articles and original contributions on the diversity and biology of bryophytes (i.e., liverworts, mosses and hornworts), including bryophyte chemistry, conservation, ecology, genetics, genomics, ontogeny, mutualism, phylogeography, physiology, and systematics. All contributions are peer-reviewed. It was previously published under the title Tropical Bryology (1989–2013).</p> en-US (Matt von Konrat) (Matt von Konrat) Wed, 14 Jul 2021 10:50:57 +1200 OJS 60 <p><strong><em>Schistidium foraminis-martini</em> <em>sp. nov.</em> (Grimmiaceae), a high mountain calcicole from the European Alps molecularly related to <em>S. agassizii</em></strong></p> <p><em>Schistidium foraminis-martini</em> is described as a new species from the Austrian and Swiss Alps. The taxon is characterized by a warm brown coloration, ovate, concave and muticous leaves with rounded apices, ellipsoid capsules, constricted at mouth, the presence of stomata and a reduced, truncate peristome. Based on sequences of the ITS region the new species is phylogenetically rather isolated, exhibiting the closest relationship to <em>S. agassizii</em> which shares the muticous leaves but differs in having narrowly lingulate-lanceolate, almost flat leaves, cyathiform capsules and a perfect peristome. <em>Schistidium foraminis-martini </em>grows on moist calcareous rocks in the alpine and nival belt.</p> THOMAS KIEBACHER, HERIBERT KÖCKINGER, HANS H.

Herein, we continue by further describing and illustrating two new species, as well as by providing evidence for substantial geographical extensions of another five taxa. Two new species, <em>Ceratolejeunea ocirii </em>and<em> Ceratolejeunea semicornua </em>are herein described. <em>Cololejeunea appressa</em> is newly recorded for Brazil, and <em>Cheilolejeunea savannae</em>, <em>Cololejeunea clavatopapillata</em>, <em>Prionolejeunea galliotii</em> and <em>Plagiochila eggersii</em> are new records for the state of Amazonas, Brazil.</p> ADRIEL M.
