A new species, Drepanolejeunea longifolia, from the rain forest of Meghalaya province in eastern Himalayas has been investigated and is described as new. It is confined to the Mawphlong Forest and Elephant Falls in East Khasi Hills of Meghalaya and differentiated from the similar D. angustifolia by larger (20 mm) plants; erect, distant, triangular leaves with entire margins and lack of ocelli. Some variable morphoforms of D. erecta exhibiting small plants, suboblique, oblong to sub-elleptical, more or less entire leaves (rarely with 2–3 marginal protrusions in young leaves) with single-celled leaf ocelli and 5-keeled perianth have also been encountered and are described here.
