Grimmia limprichtii Kern was found 1993 in the French Hautes Alps. This rare alpine species, described in 1897 from the Italian Alps, was subsequently recorded from some French and Swiss localities. Because Loeske incorrectly considered it to be a muticousform ofG. anodon Bruch et Schimp., the species was more or less forgotten. Its morphology, taxonomy, ecology, and distribution are briefly outlined. Grimmia obtusifolia Gao & Cao, recently described from the Himalayas, is conspecific with G. limprichtii Kern.
