Paraleucobryum (Lindberg ex Limpricht) Loeske, 1907.



Paraleucobryum is a rather large acrocarpous moss with somewhat falcate-secund and subulate leaves. Our species has virtually no leaf lamina on either side of the very broad and flattened costa. In cross-section the leaf is uniformly three cell layers thick with the internal layer formed of deep green photosynthetic cells. Paraleucobryum enerve is primarily a Rocky Mountain species which is occasionally found on thin soils over rocks in alpine and subalpine areas of Washington State. We expect that it will eventually be found in California.
