    Forty-eight species of liverworts (Marchantiophyta) are reported as new to the Fiji Islands. These records increase the number of Fijian liverworts by over 20%. Extension of range within Fiji are reported for an additional 39 taxa already known to occur within the Fijian archipelago. These records indicate that the Fijian flora is understudied and many localities in Fiji, including entire islands, remain under-collected for bryophytes. Metalejeunea crassitexta (J.B.Jack et Steph.) Pocs is proposed as a new combination, and Lejeunea microstipula Steph. is reduced to a synonym of Lejeunea exilis (Reinw., Blume et Nees) Grolle.
