Notes     (Last Modified On 3/11/2009)
general taxon notes:
This little moss is very well marked by its lack of teniolae, pale spherical clusters of gemmae all around on the tips of the excurrent costa of gemmiferous leaves, and distally truncate cancellinae. See discussion under C. graeffeanum for differentiation from that species, which is the only other Chinese Calymperes with which it could be confused.
