Abstract

A species of Pottiaceae (Bryophyta) from northwestern China, northern India and central Myanmar was evaluated as a remnant of an ancient lineage. Macroevolutionary analysis demonstrated its isolated status against other species in similar, morphologically much-reduced genera of Pleuroweisieae, occasioning the description of a new genus, Eobryum R.H.Zander & Sollman.
