Re: BRYONET: Local endemic bryophytes

An interesting case-in-point was just reported by Sotiaux et al.,
Journal of Bryology 31: 186-196. It is a species of Leptodon, endemic
to Corsica in the Mediterranean Sea. Molecular studies showed it is
nested in the widely and discontinuously distributed L. smithii, but
morphologically a far cry from it.
Best regards,
