The phylogeographic relationships between the Macaronesian islands and southern glacial refugia of the Iberian Peninsula was studied using molecular markers and two mosses as model species: Exsertotheca intermedia from Macaronesia and the recently described Neckera baetica from the Iberian Peninsula. The new combination Exsertotheca baetica (Guerra) Draper, González-Mancebo, O. Werner, J. Patiño & Ros is proposed for the latter. The genus Neckera has recently undergone considerable systematic and taxonomic changes, but our results show that the European species N. cephalonica and N. pumila belong in Neckera s. stricto.
