Abstract:Recent field work in Mexico reveals fifteen cleistocarpic moss species in the Neovolcanic Belt, several of which represent new state records for Hidalgo, Michoacán, Puebla or Tlaxcala. The distribution of these species suggests that they have been able to cross the Neovolcanic Belt, but their method of dispersal remains obscure. Local dispersal may be enhanced by forest disturbance, agriculture, grazing and/or by their ability to shed the capsules with ease.
