Coscinodon cribrosus (Hedw.) Spruce is reported for the first time from Inner Mongolia Province of China based on a recent collection made from (Mt.) Helan Shan (38 48 N, 105 54 E). It is the second locality known from mainland China. Detailed description and illustration of the newly discovered Inner Mongolian specimens are given. The record of this species from Taiwan is quite out of its range and habitat.
