Abstract

Based on revision of c. 200 collections of Schistidium made during the ongoing survey of the bryophyte flora of the province of Skåne, it is concluded that although S. apocarpum (s.str.) and S. crassipilum are by far the most frequent species a fair number of other taxa occure in the province. Thus, single collections of four species not previously documented from the province, viz. S. boreale, S. dupretii, S. robustum and S. trichodon, have been revealed. For all of these species this makes an extention of their known range of more than 500 km, indicating that also species not known from adjacent regions have to be considered when identifying material of this genus. A combination of efficient long-range dispersal and an ability to colonize virgin substrates may explain their, possibly short-lived, emergence far outside their established range. Further surveying is needed to document their distribution and frequency in the province, and their ability to persist at the localities. In total, 13 taxa of the genus are now documented from the province.
