Nineteen species, belonging to nine genera in four families, of epiphyllous liverworts from Qianjiangyuan National Park are reported. Among them, 17 species belonging to eight genera in three families are newly reported. Compared with other areas of China with the same latitude, the number of species in Qiangjiangyuan National Park is the second only to Motuo of Xizang (Tibet). Cololejeunea longifolia and Leptolejeunea subacuta are most common species. The rich diversity of species indicates that the environment of Qianjiangyuan National Park is suitable for the growth of epiphyllous liverworts, which may be due to the long-term effective protection of the area.
