9. New combinations, new synonyms and new taxa

9.1 New combinations, new synonyms, and new taxa will be included in the Moss Flora of China (English version). The same information is encouraged to be published separately by the authors of the treatment in an appropriate journal prior to their uses in the flora. When this information is published separately, acknowledgement of this project and acquisition of a project publication serial number are required.

9.2 The holotype of a new species will be deposited in an appropriate Chinese herbarium, with isotypes distributed in the related western herbaria unless a discovered type specimen belongs to a western herbarium. In latter case, whenever is possible, an isotype or paratype (if any) should be arranged to be deposited in a major Chinese herbarium.
