A new species, D. rengei sp. nov. of the genus Dirphia Hübner, 1819 ("1816") (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae, Hemileucinae) is described from Zamora Chinchipe and Napo provinces of Ecuador. The male holotype is stored in the scientific collections of the Estonian Museum of Natural History, Tallinn. The new species is compared with its (probably) nearest relatives, D. radiata Dognin, 1916 and D. irradians Lemaire, 1972.

A new moth species from the oriental geometrid genus Rhanidopsis West, 1930 is described: R. kogeri Viidalepp & Lindt, sp. n., from Cameron Highlands, Peninsular Malaysia is added to the distribution area of the genus, formerly known from the Philippines and Borneo. Phenotypical similarity of the genus with Afrotropical Dargeia Herbulot, 1977 and Neotropical Pyrochlora Warren, 1895 is discussed. Some plesiomorphic characters of Neotropical and Indoaustralian genera of Nemoriini are compared.

A key to continental Neotropical species of Phrudocentra Warren, 1895, s. lat. is designed and provided with photos of moths and their male genital structures. The genus Phrudocentra Warren is redefined. Two subgenera are reinstated within Phrudocentra Warren, s. lat.: Phrudocentra Warren, s. str. (type species: P. pupillata Warren, 1897) and Melochlora Warren, 1901 (type species: Tachyphyle neis Druce, 1892). Three new genera are described: Assachlora Viidalepp & Lindt, gen. n. (type species: Nemoria assa Druce, 1892), Lindachlora Viidalepp & Lindt, gen. n. (type species: Tachyphyle flaccida Warren, 1909) and Lissocentra Viidalepp & Lindt, gen. n. (type species: Melochlora hydatodes Warren, 1906). Two species are found fitting with characters of the genus Lissochlora Warren, 1900: Lissochlora niveiceps (Prout, 1912) comb. n. and Lissochlora senescens (Prout, 1917) comb. n. One new species, Assachlora julietae Viidalepp & Lindt, sp. n. is described.

A new genus and species of Neotropical emerald geometrid moths, Haruchlora Viidalepp & Lindt, gen. nov., and Haruchlora maesi Viidalepp & Lindt, sp. nov. are described. The new genus differs from all other New World Geometrinae genera in having a bifid uncus, in characters of the pregenital segments of the male abdomen, and in the male genitalia.

The updated list of Estonian bryophytes includes 594 species from all three phyla. Only one species is reported for Estonia according to the literature data, all others have voucher speciemens in herbaria, two of them outside of Estonia. Altogether 242 species are frequent in Estonia, 173 species are rare, and 161 are sporadically distributed. We do not have any recent data for 20 species, and their presence in Estonia is doubtful. In 2008 a new Estonian Red list was compiled and 369 bryophyte species were evaluated against IUCN criteria. Approximately one fifth of the Estonian bryoflora (129 species) is designated to the three threat categories.
