Abstract

Lethocolea naruto-toganensis is described as a new species from central Honshu of Japan. It is closely allied to L. congesta (Lehmann) S. W. Arnell from South Africa, L. javanica (Schiffn.) Grolle from Indonesia, and L. pansa (Taylor) G. A. M. Scott & K. Beckm. from Australia in having multicellular discoid gemmae. However, L. naruto-toganensis is distinguished from these species by purple-red rhizoids, ovate leaves, smooth cell surfaces, small trigones, and short marsupia.
