Grimmiaceae subfam. Racomitrioideae (Bryophyta) in Hungary

Open access


The subfamily Racomitrioideae of the Grimmiaceae is represented in Hungary by seven species belonging to four genera, including Bucklandiella affinis (F. Weber & D. Mohr) Bednarek-Ochyra & Ochyra, B. heterosticha (Hedw.) Bednarek- Ochyra & Ochyra, B. microcarpa (Hedw.) Bednarek-Ochyra & Ochyra, Codriophorus aciculare (Hedw.) P. Beauv., C. aquaticus (Brid.) Brid., Racomitrium lanuginosum (Hedw.) Brid. and Niphotrichum canescens (Hedw.) Bednarek-Ochyra & Ochyra. All species are briefly described and illustrated and their distribution in Hungary is mapped. A key for determination of genera and species is provided. Some ecological, bryogeographical and conservation questions related to particular species are discussed. The following new statuses and combinations are proposed: Codriophorus P. Beauv. sect. Hydrophilus (Bednarek-Ochyra) Bednarek- Ochyra & Ochyra, stat. et comb. nov., Codriophorus sect. Depressi (Bednarek-Ochyra) Bednarek-Ochyra & Ochyra, stat. et comb. nov., and Codriophorus sect. Andicola (Bednarek-Ochyra) Bednarek-Ochyra & Ochyra, stat. et comb. nov.
