Abstract

Bednarek-Ochyra, H. 2014. A taxonomic assessment of Racomitrium steerei (Grimmiaceae, Musci) from Venezuela.–Herzogia 27: 141–146.

Racomitrium steerei from the northern Andes of Venezuela is taxonomically assessed and some diagnostic traits of the type material are illustrated. An investigation of the type material revealed that this species is inseparable from Bucklandiella lamprocarpa, a south-pan-temperate species which extends into the Neotropics along the Andean chain. Diversity of the Grimmiaceae subfam. Racomitrioideae in northern South America is briefly outlined.
