It approachesHyalolepidozia in the almost uniformly intercalary branching but differs from it in the intermingled 2–3-lobed leaves and the stem with 9–12 rows of cortical cells.Paracromastigum andHyalolepidozia are intimately allied toPseudocephalozia Schust., and one could argue that they could all be placed as subgeneric elements in a single genus. Whatever their status, these taxa fit reasonably well into… CONTINUE READING
