Abstract: The genus Schiffneria Steph. was founded in 1894 by F. Stephani. A new species——Schiffneria yunnanensis C. Gao & W. Li sp. nov. was found during our studying on Chinese specimen. The gametophyte of Schiffneria is thalloid, the inflorescence shoot shows ancestral characters, so it should be put in the Pallaviciniales belonging to Jungermanniideae.
