The genus Entodontopsis (Bryophyta: Stereophyllaceae) is reported as new to the Australian flora, based on a recent collection from northern Queensland identified as Entodontopsis pygmaea. This species was previously known from Vietnam, Thailand, China, India and Nepal. It is distinguished in the Australian flora by the procumbent habit, complanate ovate-ligulate leaves, presence of a costa failing in the upper half of the leaf, weakly denticulate leaf margin, smooth longlinear cells in mid-lamina, and gradually differentiated rectangular to rhomboidal alar cells. The likely type locality for the species, previously uncertain, is identified.
