Abstract

The moss genus Brachytheciastrum (Brachytheciaceae) is taxonomically revised for the Mediterranean area. Seven species are recognized. Two new combinations are proposed: Brachytheciastrum umbilicatum and B. salicinum. Brachytheciastrum bellicum is newly synonymized with B. salicinum. Lectotypes for Brachythecium umbilicatum and Hypnum collinum are designated. A key to the species of the Mediterranean region, as well as descriptions, illustrations, and distribution data, are provided. New records for countries within the study area are reported.
