A reexamination of specimens of Entosthodon balansae Besch. from Chile reveals that they represent either Entosthodon obtusifolius Hook.f., Funaria chilensis (Thér.) Thér. or Physcomitrium sp. (aff. badium Broth.). Entosthodon balansae should therefore be excluded from the Chilean bryophyte flora. Entosthodon obtusifolius and Funaria chilensis are reported as new to the flora of the Provinces of Llanquihue and Ñuble, respectively.
