Project data     (Last Modified On 10/18/2013)
Nomenclature: P.enerve (Thed. ex Hartm.) Loeske, Hedwigia 47: 171. 1908.
Dicranum enerve Thed. ex Hartm., Skand. Fl. (ed. 5), 393. 1849.
Distribution: On soil or soil over rock at 2100 m alt.; Veracruz, Oaxaca, and Mexico (Nevado de Toluca), also reported from Puebla (Pico de Orizaba), by Delgadillo (1984b). - Mexico; western North America (southeastern Alaska, British Columbia, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona); Europe and Asia.
Discussion: The very broad costa with green cells sandwiched between layers of hyaline cells is distinctive. Campylopus pittieri and C. albidovirens both have median chlorocysts (as well as dorsal chlorocysts mingled with leucocysts), not always distinguishable, however, in older specimens.
