Bryocrumia malabarica is a new species of moss named after the Malabar region in Kerala. It was discovered in the Malabar Wildlife Sanctuary along the Western Ghats. It is the second species to be identified in the genus Bryocrumia, which was thought to be monotypic (representing only one species). The only other species to belong to this genus is B.vivicolor. The newly discovered species is different from B.vivicolor in leaf structure.
