A generic description of Riccardia Gray is presented, as well as confirmation of the local presence of its type species,R midtifida (I,.) Gray, which is described and illustrated. Amell (1952; 1963) incorrectly identified his collections of this species as R. saccatiflora (Steph.) S.W.Arnell; some notes on it are added.
