Tortula fragilis (Taylor) Ochyra [Pottiaceae]
Tortula_fragilis: Species treatment still being edited. Mail a correction to Paul Wilson ·
LiteratureHarthill et al. 1979; Long 1978.
NotesAccording to Mishler (pers. com.) the earlier literature citations for this taxon as part of the California bryoflora are in error. The specimens originally attributed as Tortula fragilis most likely belong to Tortula inermis (Syntrichia inermis in this catalogue) and related species. Tortula fragilis is known from Mexico with the nearest U.S. occurrence being in the state of New Mexico. See also Mishler 1984.
