Pohlia section Apalodictyon (Bryaceae, Bryophyta) in Central and South America
Abstract:Pohlia section Apalodictyon is taxonomically studied for Central and South America. Three species are recognized in the study area (Pohlia lonchochaete, P. magnifica and P. wahlenbergii). Mniobryum bolivianum from Bolivia is proposed as a new synonym of P. wahlenbergii. Three new lectotypes are designated. We provide the first illustrations of P. lonchochaete and P. magnifica, two neglected species from southern South America and describe and illustrate all species observed. Distribution maps of the taxa in Latin America are presented.
