Abstract
Metzgeria angusta Steph., a species recorded from numerous localities in the New World, is lectotypified and redescribed. The syntype material is heterogeneous and includes seven different species. As lectotypified here, Metzgeria angusta is similar to M. albinea Spruce and is reduced to varietal status under the latter, as Metzgeria albinea var angusta (Steph.) Costa & Gradst. stat. nov. (= Metzgeria angusta var pectinata Schiffn., syn. nov.). The variety occurs in Mexico, Trinidad, and southeastern Brazil.
