The classification of Lejeuneeae, the most speciose tribe of the largely epiphytic leafy liverwort family Lejeuneaceae, is deemed notoriously difficult and hampered by extensive morphological homoplasy. We employed sequences of two chloroplast regions (trnL-trnF, rbcL) and the nuclear ribosomal ITS region of several critical taxa to explore their phylogenetic position. Based on our phylogenetic analyses and accompanying morphological investigations, we transfer Microlejeunea aphanella to… Expand
