A Revision of the Genus Acromastigum by Alexander W. Evans

By Alexander W. Evans

The writer's genusAcromastigum( I zero) illustrates terminal branching from either lateral and ventral segments and is the one genus of the Hepaticae with which the latter kind of branching has been linked. The branches coming up during this unparalleled demeanour are flagelliform in personality, and every exhibits on the base a slim and incomplete underleaf. This represents the a part of the section that used to be now not focused on the formation of the department. within the writer's dialogue of branching within the leafy Hepaticae (II, p. 23), terminal branching from ventral segments is easily distinct because the "Acromastigztm" style, and its designated good points are mentioned. within the genus Bazzania, or M astigobryum because it is frequently known as, the ventral flagelliform branches are intercalary in starting place and come up within the axils of underleaves. with the exception of this crucial distinction the genera Acromastigum and Bazzania have a lot in universal, and the one species of Acromastigum which has up to now been well-known used to be origi nally referred, with a few doubt, to the genus M astigobryum. This species, that's referred to now as A. integrifolium (Aust.) Evans, is outwardly limited to Hawaii.
