Abstract: Meto situated in the southeastern Tibet, about 30°N' Lat., enjoys a tropical climate. Below 2500m. altitude, there are monsoon rain forests and broad-leaved evergreen forests, from which the Tibetan scientific expedition has gathered 71 specimens of epiphyllous liverworts representing 26 species and 2 varieties in 13 genera. This may be considered as a distinct subzone for the epiphyllous liverworts in the south part of the Tibetan East Himalaya.
