Abstract


The genus Symphysodontella (Bryophyta: Pterobryaceae) is reported as new to the Australian flora, based on a collection from northern Queensland that we identify as Symphysodontella splendens. This species was previously known from Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea and Vietnam. The presence of gemmae is reported for the first time in Symphysodontella.
