Taxonomic Revision of Brachytheciastrum (Brachytheciaceae, Bryophyta) from the Mediterranean Region
The moss genus Brachytheciastrum (Brachytheciaceae) is taxonomically revised for the Mediterranean area. Seven species are recognized. Two new combinations are proposed: Brachytheciastrum umbilicatum and B. salicinum . Brachytheciastrum bellicum is newly synonymized with B. salicinum. Lectotypes for Brachythecium umbilicatum and Hypnum collinum are designated. A key to the species of the Mediterranean region, as well as descriptions, illustrations, and distribution data, are provided. New records for countries within the study area are reported.
