Correction to the Moss Key appearing in the last issue
Correction to the Moss Key appearing in the last issue.
Unfortunatley [sic] a slip was made in keying the mosses with 3 rows of leaves: Rhacopilum is the only genus with a dorsal row of leaves, not Cyathophorum as shown.
Numbers 11-14 of the key should read as follows:
|11.||One dorsal and two lateral rows of leaves: leaves piliferous by the excurrent nerve||Rhacopilum|
|One ventral and two lateral rows of leaves||12|
|13.||Leaves strikingly ciliate||Catharomnion|
|Leaves not ciliate||14|
|14.||Usually unbranched: seta so short that the capsule is hidden under the frond.||Cyathophorum|
|Stems usually tree- or umbrella-like, much branched above. Seta obvious, from the top of the “umbrella.”||Hypopterygium|
|In the introduction, Dr. Taylor's name should be erased and W. Wilson's added in its place.|
