Abstract

In Magill & Schelpe (1979) Symphyogyna lehmanniana is confirmed as occurring in southern Africa. Subsequently, however. Grolle (1980) reported that this name, which has been applied to a liverwort widespread in Africa, is a synonym of S.  brasiliensis. To draw attention to this synonymy, a description of S. brasiliensis, illustrated with photographs, is given here, as well as an account of its distinguishing features and its distribution.
