A study of recent material of the dendroid thallose liverwort genus Jensenia (Metzgeriales) from the Colombian Andes revealed the existence of three taxa in the area: J. erythropus (Gott.) Grolle var. erythropus, J. erythropus var. nobandae van der Gronde var. nov. and J. florschuetzii van der Gronde spec. nov. The species occur in the high Andean forests and the páramos in shaded, atmospherically humid, terrestric habitats, at altitudes ranging from ca. 2200 to 4100 m.
