This paper reports progress in the three years since the 1998 BBS Loughborough meeting. It looks at aspects of Plagiochila in Britain, Europe and Macaronesia, but, as the title implies, it is also necessary to take account of the situation further afield. The topics covered include evidence relating to the presence in Macaronesia of P. bifaria (Sw.) Lindenb., P. dubia Lindenb. and Gottsche and P. spinulosa (Dicks.) Dumort., to the synonymy of P. killarniensis Pearson and P. bifaria, and to the systematic position of P. atlantica F. Rose. Much of the work has involved others (who are cited along the way) and I wish to acknowledge particularly close collaboration with Jochen Heinrichs (Gottingen), much facilitated by the tremendous benefits of electronic mail.
