Zhu, Rui-Liang Gradstein
Lopholejeunea minuta R.L. Zhu & Gradst. is described and illustrated as a species new to science from the Solomon Islands. It is similar to Lopholejeunea latilobula but is distinguished by the larger leaf cells, the apex of the leaf lobule not being attached to the leaf lobe by several cells, the very narrow angle between the keel and ventral margin of the leaf, the rounded to obtuse apex of the leaf lobe, and the absence of distinct wings on the lateral keels of the perianth.
