| Resumen: ||Several collections of bryophytes from Monteverde, Costa Rica *Puntarenas Prov,(, have been collected by Mr. Walter James, his wife, Mary and their son, Jerry over the past eight years. In addition, they have collected a large number of ferns and fern/allies from the mountainous regions about Monteverde have have sent them to the Reed Herbarium. These will appear in another paper. Monteverde is a settlement on the western slope of Costa Rica, and northwest of San José. Most of the specimens were collected from elevations ranging from 2500 to 4500 FT. The habitats vary from deep forests, along streams and rivers to epiphytic and lithophytic situations along roads, in fields and in jungles. A few other collections of bryophytes from Costa Rica are also included. They include a small collection of bryophytes from Clarence K. Horich, who also has collected many ferns and fern/allies for the Reed Herbarium; a small collection from Luis D. Gómez Pignataro, of San José; and several collections by Paul H. Allen, Paul Standley and J. Valerio. These collections are from various other areas of Costa Rica. The bryophytes reported here are represented by 112 species of mosses and 77 species of liverworts. several new species have been described from these collections, all specimens are represented in the Reed Herbarium (R), Baltimore, Maryland, and in the United States National Herbarium where indicated (US)|
