Buxbaumia minakatae S. Okamura 1911


    provided by eFloras
    Buxbaumia piperi has occasionally been confused with this species, but the sporangium shape (narrowly ovate to cylindric) and the shorter, often arcuate seta separate B. minakatae; B. piperi has a longer, straight seta and ovate sporangium. A report of B. indusiata (A. J. Grout 1928-1940, vol. 1) was based on misidentifications of eastern North American material.
