What is Clastobryella tenella M.Fleisch.?

James R Shevock

Abstract


The moss Clastobryella tenella M.Fleisch. based on a collection from Java has remained poorly understood since its original description. Microscopic examination of the type material in the Fleischer Herbarium within the Farlow Herbarium of Harvard University concluded that the exceedingly fragmentary type material best represents juvenile plants of Gammiella tonkinensis (Broth. & Par.) B.C. Tan.
