Notes     (Last Modified On 5/6/2009)
general taxon notes:
Plagiothecium succulentum is close to P. nemorale, but differs by its ovate-lanceolate to oblong-lanceolate leaves with often reflexed leaf apices and longer median leaf cells (up to 200 µm long vs. to 100 µm long).

16. Plagiothecium succulentum (Wilson) Lindb.   长喙棉藓   chang hui mian xian
Bot. Not. 1865: 43. 1865. Hypnum succulentum Wilson, Bryol. Brit. 407. 1855, nom. inval. in synon. Hypnum denticulatum var. succulentum Wilson, Bryol. Brit. 407. 1855. Type: Europe.
Plants rather robust, dark green or yellowish green, strongly glossy, in dense mats. Stems prostrate, irregularly branched, sometimes with ascending branches; central strand differentiated. All leaves usually more or less symmetric, broadly ovate-lanceolate to oblong-lanceolate, 2–3 mm × 1.0–1.3 mm, concave, sometimes plicate or reflexed at apex; margins plane or slightly recurved, mostly entire or rarely minutely serrulate near leaf apex; costae short, double, forked; median leaf cells linear-rhomboidal, 120–200 µm × 12–18 µm, thin-walled; apical cells not differentiated; basal cells shorter, broader; alar regions narrowly decurrent, consisting of elongate-rectangular to linear cells. Brood bodies often present in leaf axils. Autoicous. Setae 15–25 mm long; capsules nearly erect or slightly arcuate, cylindrical, ca. 2.0–2.2 mm long, with a distinct neck; opercula long conic-rostrate; peristome typical for the genus; cilia 2–3. Spores 12–14 µm in diameter, nearly smooth or minutely papillose.
