Notes     (Last Modified On 5/1/2009)
general taxon notes:
Fissidens subangustus looks rather similar to F. crispulus byvirtue of the distinct axillary hyaline nodules. However, the leaves of the present species differ in the strongly curled apices when dry, rounded-hexagonal laminal cells with 1–3 minute papillae.
