The Tibetan and Guizhou Plateaus are characterised by great differences in elevation, complex terrains and diverse climate, and they harbour rich bryofloras. During a short excursion in Guizhou Province and Tibet in southwestern China, Encalypta pilifera was discovered and its range thereby extended to East Asia (China). In addition, Ptychomitrium mamillosum was found in Tibet and Delongia glacialis in both Tibet and Guizhou Province. These discoveries extend the geographic range of the latter two species. We discuss the differences between them and similar species. Brief morphological descriptions, distributional remarks and photographs of species are provided.
