Eobruchia ecuatoriana sp. nov. (Bruchiaceae) has the aspect of a diminutive Trematodon, but is distinctive in having a mitrate calyptra and flexuous seta; Macromitrium perreflexum sp. nov. (Orthotrichaceae) has remarkably reflexed leaves, unlike any known species; Lepidopilum pulcherrimum sp. nov. (Hookeriaceae) is distinguished by its large size and beautifully undulate leaves; Symphyodon americanus sp. nov. (Symphyodontaceae) is remarkable in being the first American representative of a genus and family previously known only fro Asia; it is most closely related to S. echinatus (Mitt.) Jaeg. of the Himalayas and Thailand.
