Two Asiatic Lejeunea species with ocelli in the leaf lobe, Lejeunea moniliata Mizut. and Lejeunea wallichiana (Lehm.) Lehm. ex Gottsche, Lindenb. et Nees, are transferred to Microlejeunea (Lejeuneaceae, Marchantiophyta). Two new combinations are proposed: Microlejeunea moniliata (Mizut.) R.L.Zhu et Y.M.Wei comb. nov. and Microlejeunea wallichiana (Lehm.) R.L.Zhu et Y.M.Wei comb. nov. Microlejeunea moniliata is only known from the type locality in northern Thailand, where it was rediscovered in 2011, and is suggested to be placed in the red list of Thai bryophytes.
