Bakalin, V. A. 2016. Notes on Lophozia VIII. The lectotypification of Lophozia longiflora (Nees) Schiffn. (Lophoziaceae, Hepaticae). — Herzogia 29: 635–642.
Lophozia longiflora is lectotypified by the specimen from authentic material of the taxon housed in the herbarium STR. The species prefers moist to wet cliffy or swampy habitats in hemiarctic and northern boreal zones and corresponding mountain belts throughout the northern Holarctic, and is morphologically different from the mainly epixylous boreal and oroboreal taxon Lophozia guttulata. The main features of the species are canaliculate-concave leaves, with gibbous sinus and leaf lobes turned to the apex and inward of the leaf, convex trigones of midleaf cells, strongly recurved sinus margins of female bracts and bracteoles and a sparsely dentate perianth mouth with teeth 1–2 cells long.
