Although the bryophyte flora from La Gomera island is largely known, some new and interesting species has been recently recorded, mainly in those habitat types less studied of the cloud forest areas. A rare liverwort species in the Canaries, previously known only from Tenerife island (Telaranea europaea), and three mosses (Didymodon sicculus, Rhamphidium purpuratum and Sciuro-hypnum plumosum) are reported here as new to La Gomera. R. purpuratum is especially interesting due to its worldwide rarity.
