Notes on the Genus Cololejeunea (Lejeuneaceae) in Panama. C. cingens (New Record) and C. tamasii

- Neotropics, bracts, leaves, Panama
- Cololejeunea cingens (Herzog) Bernecker & Pócs is recorded for the first time from Panama, extending its distribution in the Neotropics. Additional descriptions based on Panamanian material are provided for C. cingens and for C. tamasii Schäf.-Verw., a species only known from the type, for which dimorphic leaves and gynoecial bracts are first described. We therefore view subgen. Pedinolejeunea Benedix ex Mizut. as a better subgeneric placement for C. tamasii than subgen. Cololejeunea.
