    Meiotic chromosome numbers, of some 180 collections are presented, comprising 80 species in 57 genera of Australian mosses from the following 29 families: Bartramiaceae, Brachytheciaceae, Bruchiaceae, Crypheaceae, Daltoniaceae, Dicranaceae, Ditrichaceae, Echinodiaceae, Encalyptaceae, Fabroniaceae, Fissidentaceae, Funariaceae, Grimmiaceae, Hedwigiaceae, Hypnodendraceae, Hypopterygiaceae, Lembophyllaceae, Leucobryaceae, Meteoriaceae, Mitteniaceae, Mniaceae, Neckeraceae, Pottiaceae, Pterobryaceae, Ptychomniaceae, Racopilaceae, Rhizogoniaceae, Sematophyllaceae, Thuidiaceae. Many of these counts (40) are new records for Australian mosses while the others are additional reports or confirmation of previously published chromosome numbers. The identity of a specimen named as Philonotis harrisi Geh. nom nud. for which a chromosome count was published previously, has been updated and corrected to Philonotis tenuis (Taylor) Reichardt. Additional data and name corrections for some of the New Zealand moss chromosome reports by Ramsay (2009) for Funariaceae and Pottiaceae are included.
