Cytological observations are made on seven moss taxa belonging to five genera and three families. Chromosome numbers for Funaria calcarea Wahlenb. (n = 28), Brachymenium longicolle Thér. (n = 11) and B. ptychothecium (Besch.) Ochi (n = 20) are provided for the first time. The chromosome number in Entosthodon wichurae Fleisch. (n = 28) differs from the earlier counts for this taxon. A heteromorphic h-bivalent is found in Timmiella diminuta (C.Müll.) Chen.
