Notes     (Last Modified On 5/1/2009)
general taxon notes:
Fissidens robinsonii was reduced to a synonym of F. zippelianus (= F. crispulus) by Norris & Koponen (1987). However, var. robinsonii differs from var. crispulus by having a differentiated central strand and a more robust costa that is shortly excurrent.
