Notes on the occurrence of Cheilolejeunea savannae L.P. Macedo, Ilk.-Borg. & C.J. Bastos and C. intertexta (Lindenb.) Steph. in Brazil, and the reinstatment of Cheilolejeunea compacta (Steph.) M.E. Reiner (Lejeuneaceae, Jungermanniidae)
Keywords:Cheilolejeuneinae, neotropic, taxonomy
The description of the new species for Brazil, Cheilolejeunea savannae L.P. Macedo, Ilk.-Borg. & C.J. Bastos, raised the need to review many specimens previously identified as Cheilolejeunea intertexta (Lindenb.) Steph., aiming to refine the concept of this species and its real distribution in Brazil. The present study also resulted in the reinstatement of Cheilolejeunea compacta (Steph.) M.E. Reiner previously considered synonymous with C. intertexta, as a distinct taxon. It also showed that C. savannae has a wider distribution in Brazil and especially in the State of Bahia, compared to C. intertexta and C. compacta. Descriptions and a key to the separation of the three species recognized here are presented.
