general taxon notes:
Lindbergia serrulatus is similar to L. sinensis, but differs from the latter by having plants irregularly and pinnately branched, leaves broadly ovate with short apices, upper leaf margins serrulate, leaf cells rhomboidal, with projections or papillae at upper ends, capsules ovoid, and annuli well developed, consisting of two rows of thick-walled cells.

3. Lindbergia serrulata C. Gao, T. Cao & W.-H. Wang in P.-C. Wu 齿边细枝藓 chi-bian xi-zhi xian
Fl. Bryophyt. Sin. 6: 130. 2001. Type. China: Yunnan, Kunming City, Xishan (Mt.), X.-J. Li 3095 (holotype IFSBH; isotype HKAS).
Plants yellowish green, slightly shiny. Primary stems creeping, 2–3 cm long, lateral stems erect or ascending, long irregularly pinnately branched. Stem leaves broadly ovate, 1.1–1.2 mm × 0.4–0.6 mm, with a short apex; margins obviously serrulate above; branch leaves small, ovate, 0.6–1.0 mm × 0.35–0.40 mm; costa somewhat hyaline, slender, ending at middle of the leaf; upper and median leaf cells rhomboidal, 25–40 µm × 10–12µm, thin-walled, smooth, projecting at upper ends; basal cells near margins flatly quadrate to subquadrate, 10–20 µm wide, basal cells along costa elongated, 25–40 µm × 10–12 µm wide. Monoicous. Perichaetial leaves somewhat sheathing at base, 1.6 mm × 0.5 mm, hyaline, with a long acute apex. Setae ca. 1 cm long, yellowish brown, erect, smooth; capsules ellipsoid, erect, symmetric, with small mouth; annuli differentiated, consisting of two rows of thick-walled cells; peristome single, not involute when dry, deeply inserted in inner side of capsule mouth, teeth narrowly lanceolate, 0.30–0.35 mm long, verrucose, often two teeth growing together; opercula conical, with obtuse rostrum. Spores brown, spherical, 20–25 µm in diameter, finely papillose.
