Abstract

During Bryo Austral 2-expedition in 2001 to southern Chile and Chilean Patagonia a bryophyte collection was made for a survey on the terricolous bryophyte vegetation of the austral temperate rain forests. Four species (Phaeoceros skottsbergii, Plagiochila mitis, Brachythecium cavifolium, and B. majusculum) are new to the mainland of Chile. Furthermore, 14 species are new or reported for the second time from the southern Araucanian and the Valdivian region (Adelanthus tenuis, Chiloscyphus hookeri, Ch. pallidovirens, Saccogynidium vasculosum, Pachyschistochila splachnophylla, Gackstroemia schwabei, Hymenophyton flabellatum, Jensenia pisicolor, Pallavicinia xiphoides, Fissidens serratus var. leptochaete, Chorisodontium luridum, Didymodon rigidulus, Brachythecium praelongum, and Plagiothecium conostegium) and two species are new to West Patagonia (Barbula unguiculata and Syntrichia costesii). For the first time sporophytes of Chorisodontium luridum were found.
