Some bryophyte records from the Sierra Nevada (Spain) represent an interesting extension of their known distribution range. We refer to the liverwort Diplophyllum taxifolium (Wahlenb.) Dumort. and the mosses Encalypta microstoma Bals.-Criv. & De Not. and Myurella julacea (Schwägr.) Schimp., which are montane species with an arctic-alpine distribution and are known from other high mountain systems. Tortula bolanderi (Lesq.) M. Howe, with a Mediterranean distribution, is reported for the first time in peninsular Spain.
