Abstract: A first catalogue of the mosses (Bryophyta s.str.), liverworts (Marchantiophyta), and hornworts (Anthocerotophyta) of Sulawesi (formerly Celebes), Indonesia, is presented. The checklist is based on published records and a few unpublished collections. In total, 476 species are listed, including 340 of moss (in 145 genera), 134 of liverwort (in 46 genera), and 2 of hornwort (in 2 genera). One liverwort and four moss species are only known from Sulawesi. As compared with other major islands of Malesia, the number of bryophyte species recorded from Sulawesi is low. Species numbers of liverworts and mosses from Borneo, New Guinea, and the Philippines are about two to six times higher. Several large bryophyte genera are poorly represented on Sulawesi or are absent, due presumably to undercollecting. This catalogue will hopefully stimulate more work on the neglected bryophyte flora of Sulawesi. Two names, Calyptrochaeta perlimbata (Dixon) B.C.Tan & B.-C.Ho, comb, nov., and Macromitrium novorecurvulum B.C.Tan & B.-C.Ho, nom. nov, are newly proposed.
