Corrections to the bryophyte names Porella cranfordi and Temnoma townrowii, and a note on Pyrrhobryum paramattense

David Meagher


Orthographic errors in the specific epithets of Porella cranfordi Steph. and Temnoma townrowii R.M.Schust. are corrected. The orthography of the specific epithet of Pyrrhobryum paramattense (Müll.Hal.) Manuel is discussed, and the original spelling is retained. The collector of the type of Pyrrhobryum paramattense was most likely Franz Wilhelm Sieber, not Charles von Hügel.
