Title: Plagiothecium platyphyllum (Bryophyta), a rare species in Hungary
Year: 2020
Volume: 51
Pages: 25-40.


Abstract: All specimens deposited under the name Plagiothecium platyphyllum Moenk. in the bryophyte herbarium of the Hungarian Natural History Museum in Budapest (BP) were revised, along with some recent collections of the authors. As a result of this revision a majority of the specimens was found to belong to other species, and only ca 10% could be confirmed as P. platyphyllum, originating from eight locations, with recent collections from two sites only. The amended distribution of the species is mapped according to the Central European Mapping Scheme, and the corresponding specimens are cited in detail. The habitat of the Hungarian occurrences is characterised and compared to the literature. The morphological features of P. platyphyllum are described and illustrated by photographs, and the characters distinguishing this species from related taxa are discussed. We include an analytical key for the Hungarian species of the genus Plagiothecium.
