Abstract

Two epiphyllous species of the genus Cololejeunea (Hepaticae, Lejeuneaceae), C. dozyana (Sande Lac.) Schiffn. and C. sigmoidea Jovet-Ast and Tixier, are reported for the first time from Taiwan. Cololejeunea dozyana is related to C. macounii (Spruce ex Underw.) A. Evans, whereas C. sigmoidea is similar to C. formosana Mizut. and C. rotundilobula (Wu and Lin) Piippo. A distribution map of C. dozyana and C. sigmoidea and distinctions from related species are provided. Descriptions and illustrations of the two species based on local specimens are also presented.

本文首次報導台灣產的兩個葉附生疣鱗苔屬植物,匙葉疣鱗苔(新擬)Cololejeunea dozyana (Sande Lac.) Schiffn. 和單胞疣鱗苔(新擬)Cololejeunea sigmoidea Jovet-Ast & Tixier(苔綱、細鱗苔科)。匙葉疣鱗苔與距齒疣鱗苔Cololejeunea macounii (Spruce ex Underw.) A. Evans相近;而單胞疣鱗苔與台灣疣鱗苔Cololejeunea formosana Mizut. 和圓瓣疣鱗苔Cololejeunea rotundilobula (Wu & Lin) Piippo相像。本文也提供匙葉疣鱗苔和單胞疣鱗苔的分布圖,與有關種的區分點,以及根據台灣產的標本繪制的圖解和描述。
