Fissidens ezukanmae Brugg.-Nann., sp. nov. belonging to Fissidens subgen. Aloma Kindb. is described and figured from material collected on termite mounds in Nigeria. This species closely resembles the pantropical F. pellucidus Hornsch. from which it differs in having mammillose cells as well as limbidia on the mid and upper leaves of perichaetial plants.
