Bakalin, V. & Xiong, Y. 2015. Lophozia silvicola (Scapaniaceae, Hepaticae) — an unexpected record of a boreal species in the subtropical forest of Guizhou (southern China). — Herzogia 28: 44–49.
Lophozia silvicola — a species with mainly circumboreal distribution — is recorded in subtropical forests of Guizhou and this is the first record of the species in China. This occurrence was strongly unexpected due to both the highly unusual community type required for the species and the extreme distance from the nearest location (more than 2000 km southward of northern Mongolia and southern Siberia). Figures and morphological descriptions based on examined specimen are provided.
