Cinclidotus bistratosus (Cinclidotaceae, Musci), a new species to the hygrophytic moss flora of Turkey
Kürschner, Harald; Lübenau-Nestle, Renate
Cinclidotus bistratosus is described as a new species from the steep mountain gorges of the south Anatolian Taurus Mountains (Köprülü Kanyon National Park). It is well distinguished from all known Near and Middle Eastern Cinclidotus species by its unique combination of a bi- to tristratose leaf lamina, strong papillose leaf cells and an immersed capsule. The new species was collected in the flood zone of the Köprü Irmagi, where it grows on rocks exposed to submergence, as well as to summer-drought and strong insolation.
