Lectotypes for twenty names currently included in Tortula Hedw. are designated here. Tortula santorinensis Schiffn. is considered to be conspecific with T. solmsii (Schimp.) Limpr., of which it becomes a synonym, and T. eucalyptrata Lindb. conspecific with T. euryphylla R. H. Zander (≡ T. latifolia (Hedw.) Lindb., nom. illeg.), over which it has priority. In addition, the following infraspecific taxa, sometimes accepted in current literature, are not considered to be recognisable taxonomically, and are synonymized under the Tortula species involved: Desmatodon latifolius var. muticus (Brid.) Brid. (≡ Dicranum latifolium var. muticum Brid.) (= Tortula eucalyptrata), Tortula cuneifolia var. marginata M. Fleisch., T. muralis f. incana (Schimp.) Sapjegin (≡ Barbula muralis var. incana Schimp.), and T. revolvens var. obtusata Reimers.
