Abstract

A new moss species, Hyophila marginata, from Peru is distinctive but intermediate in morphology between H. involuta and the rare West Indian Teniolophora fluviatilis. Teniolophora is synonymized with the earlier name Hyophila. The difference between Hyophila and Plaubelia is clarified with a key, and Quaesticula is synonymized with Plaubelia. New combinations are Hyophila fluviatilis, Plaubelia navicularis and P. stomatodonta.
