Title: The genus Fissidens (Fissidentaceae, Bryophyta) in Hungary
Year: 2016
Volume: 47
Pages: 41-139.


Abstract: All available specimens of Fissidens collected in Hungary and deposited in BP, and the Hungarian collections of the author (B-Erzberger) were revised, altogether more than 1500 specimens. These collections are representative of Hungary, therefore their revision is equivalent to the evaluation of Fissidens in Hungary. As a result of this work, the following sixteen taxa were found to occur in Hungary: F. adianthoides, F. arnoldii, F. bambergeri, F. bryoides, F. crassipes, F. crispus (= F. limbatus), F. curvatus (= F. algarvicus), F. dubius, F. exiguus, F. exilis, F. gracilifolius, F. gymnandrus, F. incurvus, F. pusillus, F. taxifolius, and F. viridulus. F. bambergeri and F. crispus are reported for the first time in Hungary. F. crassipes subsp. warnstorfii is no longer distinguished from F. crassipes subsp. crassipes, and F. bryoides var. caespitans (= F. curnovii) is excluded. There are doubts with respect to the taxonomic value of F. bambergeri and F. exiguus, but these seem insufficient at present to warrant future neglection of these taxa. All Hungarian species are illustrated and described in detail, with notes on habitat and associated bryophytes; their records are shown in a map, and their red list status is briefly discussed. In addition, descriptions are also provided for all Fissidens species occurring in the countries surrounding Hungary (but not in Hungary: F. fontanus, F. osmundoides, F. ovatifolius, F. rivularis, F. rufulus, F. serrulatus). These species are also included in the key, and some of them are illustrated.
