Abstract

Amblyolejeunea, a poorly known monospecific genus from Ecuador and Guadeloupe, does not merit generic recognition and is proposed as a synonym of Lejeunea (Lejeuneaceae, Marchantiophyta) based on detailed study of the gametophyte and sporophyte. The new combination, Lejeunea fulfordiae comb. nov., is proposed. Detailed description and illustrations of Lejeunea fulfordiae are provided. It is recommended that the species be placed on the world red list of threatened bryophytes.
