Abstract

Three species in the genus Gemmabryum J.R. Spence & H.P. Ramsay are described and illustrated. Two species, G. brassicoides J.R. Spence & K.M. Kellman and G. vinosum J.R. Spence & K.M. Kellman, are new to science. The third species, G. californicum (Sull.) J.R. Spence, previously considered to be part of G. dichotomum (Hedw.) J.R. Spence & H.P. Ramsay, is re-instated as a full species due to its highly unusual bulbil morphology. Gemmabryum vinosum is distributed in California, Oregon, and Montana, while the other two species are endemic to California.
