Title: Heterocladium heteropterum, a new member of the Hungarian bryophyte flora.
Year: 2019
Volume: 50
Pages: 323-329.


Abstract: During the systematic field studies aimed at exploring the recent bryophyte flora of the Kőszeg Mts and in the framework of grid-cell based bryophyte recording, Heterocladium heteropterum was discovered in the valley of the stream Hármas-patak, as a new moss species for Hungary. The size of the population is estimated and the habitats are characterised. Taxonomic characterisation and illustrations are provided to distinguish it from H. dimorphum, which is the only related species growing in Hungary. Since H. heteropterum is known only in one location in the country so far, we suggest considering it as a critically endangered (CR) species.
