Towards a monophyletic classification of Lejeuneaceae IV: reinstatement of Allorgella, transfer of Microlejeunea aphanella to Vitalianthus and refinements of the subtribal classification
Using sequences of two chloroplast regions and the nuclear ribosomal ITS region of several critical taxa to explore their phylogenetic position, selected morphological characters on the reconstructed phylogenetic hypothesis are mapped to demonstrate the importance of subgynoecial innovations and ocelli for the circumscription of genera and subtribes of Lejeuneeae.

Abstract A revision of the genus Lejeunea in Malaysia based on examination of about six hundred fresh collections and about four hundred herbarium specimens leads to the recognition of 30 species and…
Geographical structure, narrow species ranges, and Cenozoic diversification in a pantropical clade of epiphyllous leafy liverworts
The clear geographic structure of the Leptolejeunea crown group points to evolutionary processes including rare long‐distance dispersal and subsequent speciation.

Widespread paraphyly and sister group relationships between disjunct taxa indicate an important role of cryptic speciation and transoceanic dispersal with subsequent genetic differentiation in the evolution of Ceratolejeunea.

An in situ preserved corticolous community from a piece of Miocene Dominican amber which is composed of a lichen, a moss and three species of leafy liverworts is reported, substantiating the notion of a stasis in morphotype diversity, but a certain turnover of species, in the Caribbean since the early Miocene.

The derived liverwort Leiolejeunea grandiflora was recollected at the type locality in Jamaica after more than 100 years and the characteristics of its oil bodies were described for the first time based on the new collections, and a wide genus concept for CheilolejeuneA is proposed to avoid nomenclatural confusion.
New species of Lejeunea (Porellales: Lejeuneaceae) from Papua New Guinea
Three new species of Lejeunea (Lejeuneaceae) from Papua New Guinea are described and illustrated herein, found growing as epiphytes on trees and inhabit the montane forests of the island.
Data to the Malaysian Liverwort Flora, II
Abstract A total of 96 epiphyllous liverwort species and 2 infraspecific taxa were collected, of which 18 are new to Malaysia, one is new to the Asian mainland and one variety is new to science:…
Molecular and Morphological Evidence Challenges the Records of the Extant Liverwort Ptilidium pulcherrimum in Eocene Baltic Amber
A re-investigation of one of the fossils believed to be P. pulcherrimum reveals that this specimen in fact represents the first fossil evidence of the genus Tetralophozia, and thus is re-described here as Tetralphozia groehnii sp.
