Abstract

Geocalyx lancistipulus (Steph.) S. Hatt. has recently been discovered from Western Himalayas (Uttarakhand), and is an addition to Indian bryoflora. The species is mainly characterized by the presence of a marsupium and its gemmiparous shoots. The discovery of the taxon from India extends its range of distribution within Asia (Japan, China, Nepal and India). With the present report, Geocalyx is now represented by two species in India, i.e., Geocalyx graveolens and Geocalyx lancistipulus.
