The list is arranged in alphabetical order of genera and species, and an extensive synonymy is given.

Approximately 39 current species and sub-taxa in 5 genera of species Anthocerotae, and 674 current species, 13 subspecies and 19 varieties of Hepaticae in 122 genera are listed, together with more than 50 species names whose status is unclear.
