Groutiella elimbata (Thér.) O'Shea, endemic to Madagascar is transferred to the genus Cardotiella. Gametophytically it is similar to C. renauldii (Broth.) Vitt except for the naked vaginula and the presence of some papillose cells in the upper lamina, especially along the costa. The endostome of C. elimbata (Thériot) Goffinet comb. nov. differs from the typical Cardotiella-endostome by strong resorption of anticlinal wall remnants of the PPL, resulting in these walls scarcely protruding above-or even completely embedded-in the PPL thickening. A similar architecture of the segments is shown to occur in Florschuetziella steerei and Pleurorthotrichum chilense. Cardotiella appendiculata is reported as new for Mauritius.
