Abstract

Coscinodon horridus, formerly Grimmia horrida, is reported as new to France from two localities. Sporophytes are described for the first time. Morphological and molecular evidence are presented supporting the transfer of G. horrida to Coscinodon. The variability of the species and reproductive traits are discussed and it is compared with morphologically similar taxa.
