Herbario de la Facultad de Ciencias Biológicas de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid (MACB)

The MACB herbarium includes in its cryptogamic collection about 13,000 accessioned bryophyte specimens (10,600 mosses and over 2,300 liverworts and hornworts). Most of the specimens were collected in the Iberian Peninsula and the Canary Islands, but countries such as Argentina, Chile or the United States are also represented in the herbarium.
