Abstract

Calymperes venezuelanum (Mitt.) Pitt. (Musci, Calymperaceae), with a scattered range in central and northern, tropical South America, is reported for the first time from Africa on a single collection from Madagascar. The presence of young and mature sporophytes in the material allows description of the sporophyte, which was previously unknown.
