Notes     (Last Modified On 3/22/2018)

Ecology: Montane region. Elevation: 3000. Distribution: Endemic to the tropical Andes (Peru). The specific epithet is unfortunate; it refers not to the Amazon region but to the political subdivision. Assigned to section Acutifolia.

Ecología: Región montana. Elevación: 3000 m. Distribución: Endémica para Perú. El epíteto específico es infortunado; se refiere a la subdivisión política no a la región amazónica.

Sphagnum amazonense is characterized by the absence of stem cortex pores, triangular, acute, slightly concave stem leaves, efibrillose hyaline cells that are once or twice divided with large membrane gaps on both surfaces; ovate-lanceolate branch leaves with numerous (to 9) elliptic commissural pores on the outer surface, 1-3, somewhat large, rounded, thin-marginal pores (or gaps) on the inner surface, hyaline cells bulging on both surfaces, and triangular green cells exposed on the inner surface.
