This paper summarizes data on the oil body characteristics of liverworts sampled from Pacific Asia and provides 1032 photographs of living cells in 572 species and 6 infraspecific taxa (1 subspecies and 5 varieties) collected mostly in Northeast, East and Southeast Asia. Several cases of oil body characteristic variations may imply taxonomic differences between populations from geographically remote areas that are now treated as belonging to the same taxon.
