Lejeunea tumida Mitt.
status

 

Lejeunea tumida Mitt.   in Hooker (1855: 157).

Eulejeunea tumida (Mitt.) Stephani (1915: 800)   .

Type:— NEW ZEALAND. Auckland, Dr. Sinclair s.n. ex herb. Mitt. (lectotype fide Grolle (1982): NY, isolectotypes: MPN, WELT!)   .

The name Lejeunea tumida   has been misapplied to a range of Australian Lejeunea species   , including L. cuspidistipula ( Stephani 1896: 88) Stephani ex Watts (1902: 493)   , L. drummondii Taylor (1846: 400)   , L. sinclairii Spruce   non Mitt. auct. and L. sordida   . The presence of L. tumida   in Australia was considered dubious by Renner et al. (2010), but the species was not explicitly rejected because all material forming the basis of early records had not been investigated. Recent examination shows that early identifications of Australian material as Lejeunea tumida   by Rodway and Stephani in the herbaria FH, BM and G are all referable to other species. Lejeunea tumida   can therefore be rejected from the Australian flora with confidence. It, and all other members of the species group formerly included within it [ L. colensoana ( Stephani 1896: 132) Renner   in Renner et al. (2010: 455), L. oracola Renner   in Renner et al. (2010: 448), and L. rhigophila Renner   in Renner et al. (2010: 453)] are endemic to the New Zealand Botanical Region.

Representative misidentified specimens:— AUSTRALIA. New South Wales: Richmond River, German Creek, April 1900, W. W. Watts 27.28, ex herb. Levier 2274 (G-19628!) is L. sinclairii Spruce   non Mitt. auct.; Tasmania: South Coast, on trees, Catamaran, Recherche, 16 January 1911, W. A. Weymouth s.n. ( BM!), det. L. Rodway, is L. drummondii   ; Tasmania, McRobies Gully, near Hobart, on trunk of tree, 200 ft, 2 January 1911, W. A. Weymouth s.n. ( BM!), det. L. Rodway, is L. drummondii   ; Norfolk Island, Red Road, on and amongst Macromitrium   on Araucaria excelsio   r, 10 September 1967, D. M. Henderson 9529 ( BM!), is L. sordida   .
