Notes     (Last Modified On 5/6/2009)
general taxon notes:
This species is endemic to East Asia and widely distributed throughout China. Hyvönen (1989) considered Pogonatum inflexum Lindb. to be very easily confused with P. neesii (C. Müll.) Dozy and indicated that most of its records in continental Asia were based on wrong identifications of P. neesii. Pogonatum inflexum is characterized by the apical cells of lamellae that are rather broad and emarginate in cross section; while in P. neesii, the apical cells have their length much longer than the width and rounded-curved in cross section.

Plants medium-sized, grayish green, brownish green when old, usually gregarious in large mats. Stems single, mostly 1–3 cm long, rarely more than 3 cm long. Basal leaves loose, triangular or ovate-lanceolate; upper leaves tufted, incurved, crisped when dry, erect patent when moist, lanceolate from an oval sheath base, 4–6 mm × 0.5–0.7 mm, strongly constricted above the sheath base, sharply acute and incurved at apex; leaf margins slightly incurved, unistratose, grossly toothed above, each tooth consisting of 2–4 single cells; costae reddish, densely and sharply dentate above; upper cells large, often brown; leaf lamellae numerous, densely arranged on ventral surface, 4–6 cells high, in cross section, apical cells of lamellae plane, oblong or rounded quadrate, mostly wider than long, slightly thick-walled; lower cells quadrate, 20–35 µm × 12–16 µm, thin-walled. Dioicous. Male plants and female plants usually growing on the same tufts. Perigonial leaves broadly oval, apices short. Setae usually single, 25–35 mm long, 0.20–0.25 mm in diameter, reddish brown; capsules erect or nearly erect, cylindrical, thick in the middle, 3.5–4.5 mm × 1–2 mm; opercula ca. 1.2 mm long; peristome teeth obtuse; membrane high. Spores 8–10 µm in diameter, smooth.
