Abstract:
We describe Pycnolejeunea chocoensis M.E.Reiner & Gradst. sp. nov. from wet lowland rainforest along the Pacific coast of Colombia (Chocó). The new species is distinguished by small decurved lobules, absence of ocelli and small, distant underleaves. Pycnolejeunea chocoensis is a further addition to the unusually rich flora of the Chocó region.
