Abstract

Brotherella cuspidata is described as a new species from Yunnan, China. It differs from the other species of Brotherella in its small plants (ca. 1 cm long), slender and long-cuspidate leaf acumina (more than ½ of the length of the lamina), and broadly triangular-lanceolate perichaetial leaves. Brotherella complanata is reported here as a new record to China from Chongqing, Hunan, Jiangxi and Zhejiang provinces. Detailed descriptions and illustrations are provided for each species.
