Abstract

377 bryophyte species (four hornworts, 198 liverworts, and 175 mosses) are reported from Jamaica, among these 57 new records for the island (two hornworts, 53 liverworts and two mosses). Eight species are for the first time attributed to the West Indies, and eight genera (Notothylas, Alobiellopsis, Colura, Fossombronia, Jensenia, Otigoniolejeunea, Leptophascum, and Rauiella) are added to the bryophyte flora of Jamaica. A total of 692 species of bryophytes are now known to occur in Jamaica (367 liverwort and hornwort species; 325 moss species).
