New combinations are proposed for three Neotropical moss species following the transfer of Barbula uncinicoma to Gertrudiella and of Cyrto-hypnum sharpii to Pelekium. Furthermore Gertrudia validinervis is considered a synonym of G. uncinicoma and its variety serratopungens (Herzog) is maintained within the latter as Gertrudiella uncinicoma var. serratopungens (Herzog) G. Suárez & M. Schiavone. Pelekium sharpii, a Central American species is recorded for the first time for South America from Bolivia and Argentina.
