Notes     (Last Modified On 6/2/2015)

Reports of Gymnostomum from the tropical Andes, specifically G. aeruginosum J. E. Sm., represent misidentifications; most such collections are Anoectangium, Molendoa or Didymodon (Cano et al. 2013). Collections named G. aeruginosum J. E. Sm. from Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela should be re-examined.
