Bryum minii Podp. ex Machado-Guim. was first described from Portugal in the nineteenth century and only recorded in Spain in 2010. It is found on acidic rocks, such as granite, near watercourses and its glossy appearance makes it relatively easy to identify in the field although it grows in small patches. New chorological data are provided for Portugal, as well as species photographs and an updated distribution map which show that it is no longer a rare species in Portugal and can therefore not
