Knowledge of Plagiochila atlantica F. Rose (Jones & Rose, 1975), as P. ambagiosa (Mitten, 1891), was based until almost thirty years ago on material from a single gathering made by Miss Hutchins around the beginning of the 19th century. The reported distribution (Hill, Preston & Smith, 1991) is restricted to W. Scotland and very few sites in W. Ireland, N. Wales and N.W. France. This note reports the finding of P. atlantica in both vice-counties of the English Lake District, a discovery that fills a significant gap in the known distribution.
