Abstract

As part of a study initiated to trace the evolutionary relationships and biogeographic affinities of Sri Lankan complex thalloid liverworts, we here present the morphological diversity of Sri Lankan complex thalloid liverworts. This serves as the first detailed taxonomic study of the group in Sri Lanka.  Specimens were collected from different geographical regions covering almost all topographic and climatic zones of the country. This study revealed 9 genera of complex thalloid liverworts in Sri Lanka. Based on our collections and identifications we prepared a generic key to Sri Lankan complex thalloid liverworts. Taxonomic descriptions were prepared for all identified genera
