13. Chinese names of mosses

13.1 Each recognized taxon in the Moss Flora of China (English version) should have only one Chinese name in characters followed by its corresponding transliteration in Hanyu Pinyin. To keep consistency and to avoid confusions, the Chinese names of mosses in the English version should be the same as those used in the Chinese version of the same flora or other published Chinese references. An index of Chinese names of mosses according to their Hanyu Pinyin and their corresponding Latin scientific names given inside the parentheses will be prepared and included as an appendix to each volume.
