Abstract

A new species Entosthodon kroonkurk sp. nov. is described and figured. It is most similar to E. pulchellus (Philibert) Brugués, from which it differs in duller and squarrosely recurved leaves when dry, a narrower nerve, and spores which are discoid and collapse when dry. It is very rare in the Iberian Peninsula (Catalunña, Gerona) but common in the Canary Islands, where it occurs mainly below 400 m alt. in S parts of Gran Canaria, Hierro, La Palma, Tenerife. A key to related Canarian species is provided. © 2010 British Bryological Society.
