Abstract: The first red list of Chinese endangered bryophytes approved by the international workshop on the conservation of the biodiversity of Chinese bryophytes held in Shanghai in December of 2004 is briefly reported. The list consists of 50 species, 47 genera, 28 families of mosses, 31 species, 26 genera, 12 families of liverworts, and one species, genus and family of hornworts. Of 82 species, 36 are classified as critically endangered (CR), 29 as endangered (EN) and 17 as vulnerable species (VU), following a modified set of IUCN/IAB criteria. The characteristics of geographic distribution, the endangered reasons as well as the further actions for conservation of Chinese endangered bryophytes are also preliminarily discussed.
