ABSTRACT. Orthodontopsis bardunovii Ignatov & B.C. Tan was described from Altai and Western Sayan Mts. in 1991, as a new species and genus. Since that time its distribution and ecology were much elucidated. Recently this species was collected also in Khubsugul Region in the Northern Mongolia. The closest relative of O. bardunovii is the species from Yunnan Province of China Orthodontopsis lignicola (Broth.) Ignatov & Tan, comb. nov. (Funaria lignicola Broth., Orthodontium lignicola (Broth.) Da-cheng Zhang, Orthodontium bilimbatum X.J.Li & Da-cheng Zhang). Illustrations and comparison of these two species of the genus Orthodontopsis are provided.
