Some validly published species names as well as nomina nuda of amblystegiaceous mosses from Australia are considered. Drepanocladus strictifolius Broth. & Watts is synonymous with Campylium polygamum (Schimp.) Lange & C. E. O. Jensen; Amblystegium subrelaxum Broth., A. novae-valesiae Broth. & Watts and Campylium molle Broth. in Rodway fall within the range of variation of the protean Cratoneuropsis relaxa (Hook. f. & Wilson) M. Fleisch.; Amblystegium leptopterygioides Müll. Hal. in Bailey, nom. nud., is Leptodictyum riparium (Hedw.) Warnst.; Amblystegium austrohygrophilum Broth. and A. austroserpens Broth. belong within Orthotheciella varia (Hedw.) Ochyra; and Amblystegium campylopodioides Broth. in A. Burges, nom. nud., is a synonym of Warnstorfia exannulata (Schimp.) Loeske. The conspecificity of Amblystegium oblongifolium Mitt., Hypnum muelleri Hampe and H. pseudouncinatum Hampe with, respectively, Bryum blandum Hook. f. & Wilson, Leptodictyum riparium (Hedw.) Warnst. and Sanionia uncinata (Hedw.) Loeske is confirmed and these names are typified.
