Abstract

Symphyodon leiocarpus, sp. nov., previously reported under the name Symphyodon oblongifolius, is described from Thailand and Myanmar. The longer axillary hairs, upright capsules with smooth exothecial cells, superficial stomata, and larger spore size suggest its remote relationship to other members of the genus. Based on a molecular phylogenetic analysis using sequences of chloroplast rbcL gene, a new subgenus, Symphyodon subg. Macrothamniopsis, is established to accommodate the species. Morphological comparisons with related genera, especially those of the Hylocomiaceae and Symphyodontaceae, are also discussed briefly.
