Status of Family Lophoziaceae (Hepaticae) in India


Status of family Lophoziaceae in India has been discussed in the light of recent investigations and our own observations on Indian taxa. A total of 19 taxa have been recognised under eight genera including Isopaches Buch., Lophozia (Dumort.) Dumort., Schistochilopsis (N. Kitag.) Konstant., Anastrepta (Lindb.) Schiffn., Anastrophyllum (Spruce) Schiffn., Tritomaria Schiffn. ex Loeske, Tetralophozia (R.M. Schust.) Schljakov and Plicanthus R.M. Schust. Four taxa viz., Anastrophyllum minutum var. himalayanum var. nov., Lophozia udarii sp. nov., Lophozia indica sp. nov. and Schistochilopsis incisa var. himalayana var. nov., have been described as new to science. Sphenolobus longkyrdumii A.P. Singh&V. Nath is proposed as synonym under Metahygrobiella albula (Mitt.) Grolle (family Cephaloziaceae Mig.), hence excluded.
