Lindigia is a monospecific genus confined to the Neotropics. The genus is characterized by the often pendent habit, erect-spreading long-lanceolate leaves, distally serrate leaf margins, short single costa, autoicous sexual condition, and slightly curved, suberect capsules. The taxon previously well known as Lindigia aciculata (Taylor) Hampe is now recognized as Aerolindigia capillacea (Hornsch.) M. Menzel and also placed in the Brachytheciaceae (see Aerolindigia). Both Aerolindigia and Lindigia are still likely to be confused, and both are occasionally found growing together. The two taxa are differentiated as follows: 1. Seta papillose, leaves to 2.5 mm long, secondary stems spreading, ± pinnately branched … Aerolindigia capillacea (see Brachytheciaceae); 1. Seta smooth, leaves to 3 mm long, secondary stems often pendent, ± irregularly pinnately branched … Lindigia debilis


Lindigia es un género monoespecífico representado por Lindigia debilis (Mitt.) A. Jaeger. El género es endémico del Neotrópico. Lindigia se caracteriza por presentar a menudo hábito pendiente, hojas largo-lanceoladas erecto-extendidas, márgenes de las hojas distalmente serrados, costa corta y simple, condición sexual autoica y cápsulas suberectas escasamente curvadas. Aerolindigia y Lindigia son géneros que aún pueden ser confundidos y ocasionalmente ambos crecen juntos. Estos dos taxa se diferencian por las siguientes características: 1. Seta papilosa, hojas de 2.5 mm de largo, tallos secundarios patentes, ramificaciones ± pinnadas … Aerolindigia capillacea; 1. Seta lisa, hojas de 3 mm de largo, tallos secundario a menudo pendientes, ramificaciones ± irregularmente pinnadas … Lindigia debilis.
