Notes     (Last Modified On 4/30/2009)
general taxon notes:
Symblepharis guizhouensis was established by Tan et al. (1994) on the basis of S. breviseta Bartr. The species was published primarily based on its short setae [2–3(–6) mm long]. However, the seta length of S. guizhouensis is clearly within the range of setae found in S. reinwardtii.
