Several noteworthy liverworts are reported from China, including Bazzania horridula Schiffn. and Riccardia tamariscina (Steph.) Schiffn. new to China, and five species new to mainland China. Cololejeunea dozyana (Sande Lac.) Schiffn. and Leptolejeunea udarii M.Dey & D.K.Singh are reported new to Thailand. Chiloscyphus yunnanensis C.Gao & Y.H.Wu, previously known only from the type locality, is proposed to be synonymous with the tropical Asian Chiloscyphus ciliolatus (Nees) J.J.Engel & R.M.Schust. SEM observations reveal that the wax-like projections on the thallus surface of Riccardia tamariscina do not belong to surface wax. Two types of oil bodies in Bazzania are illustrated. It is suggested avoiding the use of the term 'Bazzania-type' when oil bodies are described. © British Bryological Society 2013.
