In this study, the bacteriostasis of ethanol extract from seven species of Hypobryales were explored by the method of sticking filter paper, in order to study its inhibitory effects on the growth of eleven kinds of bacteria, exploring its medicinal value. The results showed that, compared with the control group, Brachythecium moriense Besch., H. fertile Sendtn. and Entodon taiwanensis C.-K.Wang & S.-H.Lin. presented extensive antibacterial effects. In addition, the bacteriostatic effects of Hypnum calcicolum Ando on Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Salmonella paratyphi B were significantly different from that of the control group. These findings are helpful to the selection and resource protection of medicinal bryophytes.
