The moss collections made by L. J. Brass in connection with the 5th, Archbold Expedition to New Guinea to New Guinea in 1956 to the islands off the eastern tip of Papua comprise 166 numbers representing 87 species as outlined in the following list. Three species are described as new and 22 preceeded by an asterisk are recorded for the first time from New Guinea. A noteworthy feature of the collection is that more than 80 % of the species collected are known to occur in the adjacent regions of Indonesia, Borneo and the Philippines indicating that the sources of this relatively lowland, insular flora are principally from the west. The collectors’ numbers are printed in italics.
