DNA-barcoding revealed/confirmed the range extension of the following bryophytes: Merceya ligulata (Primorsky Territory), Bryoerythrophyllum rubrum (Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District), and Fissidens curvatum (Yakutia). Rauiella thuidioides, known before only from the type locality is reported from Ussurijsky State Reserve. Taxonomic position of Scopelophila ligulata is considered based on brief phylogenetic reconstruction inferred from trnS-trnF sequences; arguments towards resurrection of the genus Merceya Schimp. for this species are provided.
