Full Text:



Cololejeunea cardiocarpa was misidentified by Arnell (1963) and described by him as a new variety, Leptocolea cristata var.  lanciloba. Gradstein  et al. (1983) drew attention to this error. Fresh material has now been collected and the species is described here and illustrated with photographs.
