- Schistidium ignatovae C. Feng, X.L. Bai, J. Kou & W. Li (Grimmiaceae) is described and illustrated as a new species from Sichuan Province, China. It closely resembles S. trichodon, but differs by the green to yellow-green plants; slightly flexuose, broadly and long-decurrent, denticulate leaf hair-point; narrower perichaetial leaves that have frequently narrowly recurved margins to 1/2–2/3 way up the leaf; shorter peristome teeth; and larger spores. The relationships of this new species with other species of Schistidium are discussed.
