Müller, F. 2014. Bartramia aprica — the correct name for the Mediterranean and western North American species historically recognized as “Bartramia stricta”. — Herzogia 27: 211–214.
Type material of Bartramia aprica was investigated. The material belongs to the species long recognized as “Bartramia stricta”. As Bartramia stricta is now viewed as a species with a southern South American distribution, the new name Bartramia rosamrosiae was recently introduced to accommodate the Mediterranean and western North American species. As B. aprica was validly described earlier this name has priority over the name B. rosamrosiae.
