Abstract

Plagiochila (sect. Arrectae) punctata, previously known from the Neotropics, Africa and Europe, has been collected on a sandstone cliff in a rockhouse type environment in Tennessee, new to North America. Maximum likelihood analyses based on nrITS1–5.8S-ITS2 sequences of several species of Plagiochila sect. Arrectae resolve the Tennessee specimen in a robust P. punctata subclade with accessions from Ecuador and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
