Notes     (Last Modified On 5/5/2009)
general taxon notes:


Eurhynchium kirishimense is characterized by its long linear median leaf cells (to 190 µm long) and its indistinct alar cells. It is similar to species of Rhynchostegium, but it differs by its leaves with strongly projecting costae and serrate leaf margins, and by its elongate-ellipsoidal capsules that are constricted below the mouth.
