Notes     (Last Modified On 5/6/2009)
general taxon notes:
Pogonatum subfuscatum is mainly distributed at high elevations. It is characterized by having broad margins that are without lamellae (ca. 5–7 cells wide). This species is similar to some species of Oligotrichum in general appearance with broad and short leaves, but differs by its lamellae densely covering the ventral surface of leaves; in species of Oligotrichum the lamellae only cover the ventral surface of costae.
