New records and additions to the Chilean bryophyte flora
Bryological knowledge in Chile is incomplete. With the aim of making a contribution to a better understanding of the geographic distribution of these species and encourage bryological studies and the conservation of these plants in the country, the results of floristic investigations are presented. Nineteen national, regional and provincial records for 17 species of bryophytes are provided based on revision of specimens and overlooked literature. The ranges of six species are expanded. In addition, the site of the original collection of one taxon (Barbula austrogracilis Dus.) is corrected, and a second specimen is verified.
