Abstract

Wijkia tanytricha (Mont.) Crum is a new record to the moss flora of Taiwan. The species is distinguished from W. deflexifolium (Ren. & Card.) Crum, the other species of Wijkia in Taiwan, and characterized by having broadly ovate leaves with a long, filiform acumen and enlarged alar cells. Wijkia tanytricha, distributed in southeast Asia, is related to W. carlottae, a Canadian species, in sharing foliose pseudoparaphyllia and leaf shape. No qualitative characteristics can distinguish these two taxa, although the plants, leaves, and leaf cells of Wijkia tanytricha are larger than those of W. carlottae. I suppose that W. carlottae may be conspecific with W. tanytricha.
