Yes, nice foliose liverwort.
Who has determined it as Jungermannia truncata, and with which literature? Was it sold under this name?
Any information where it was collected?

Daniel from China (you can found him at Flickr). It is similar to Homalia sp. Rosa but growing difference (i know it from man who i sent Truncata and who have Homalia sp Rosa). I have also Homalia sp. Rosa but is still to small to say what are the difference between both.

Photo of Homalia rosa:


Probably Homalia sp Rosa it is called also Jungermania Pseudocyclop, but i know person who has also Homalia sp Rosa and Jungermannia Pseudocyclop and here is his photo:

Left -J. Pseudocyclop, Right - Homalia sp Rosa:


And Here is picture compared Homalia rosa (vertically) and mini Rosa (horizontally):

Thank You, interesting to see the upright vs. creeping growth forms.
So Daniel Chow found the J. truncata himself in the nature and determined it?

Botanically the name Homalia is misapplied, because all 3 plants are apparently foliose liverworts, and Homalia is a genus of the mosses.

At least one of Your liverworts might be Solenostoma tetragonum = Jungermannia tetragona: http://www.heimbiotop.de/moos.html#S...toma_tetragona
See also this article:
Wilstermann-Hildebrand, Maike & Muth, Heiko (2011): Vom „Perlenmoos“ – zwei foliose Lebermoose sind indentifiziert. Amazonas 35, Mai/Juni 2011.
Prof. S.R. Gradstein determined the "Blepharostoma trichophyllum" from Dennerle as S. tetragonum. This liverwort has scattered cells with 1 big oil body among cells without oil bodies, thus the leaves look spotted if viewed with a magnifier or microscope.

I dont know that Daniel found it or maybe bought. I must to ask him. I remember what you wrote about name "Homalia". Jungermannia Truncata looks similar to "J. caespiticia"

Yes, they look similar; the J. caespiticia = Solenostoma caespiticium is a species from Europe and North America.
http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/tro-35185290
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jungermannia_caespiticia
The name Jungermannia truncata for Your liverwort might be correct, here J. truncata in its habitat in Hong Kong: http://www.hkflora.com/v2/bryophytes...ectphoto=photo
But new mosses and liverworts are so often introduced with wrong names in the aquarium plant trade that I think the names are mostly temptative ones given by the traders, derived from googling and not from proper IDs.
And there are more than 100 Jungermannia + Solenostoma species worldwide, looking quite uniform, so ID isn't easy.
