Abstract

The type specimen of Bryomnium solitarium Card, actually belongs to Tayloria subgen. Orthodon. A new combination, Tayloria solitaria (Card.) Kop. & W. A. Weber, is introduced. There are five other African species of Tayloria: T. isleana (Besch.) Broth., T. jamesonii (Tayl.) C. Müll., T. kilimandscharica Broth., T. orthodonta (P. Beauv.) Demar. and T. thomeana (Broth.) Broth. A key for the African species of Tayloria is given and their diagnostic characters are discussed and figured. The taxonomic status of T. bequaertii Thér. & Naveau, T. boryana var. brevipes Thér., T. cameruniae (Dus.) Broth., T. pobeguinii Broth. & Par., T. imerinensis Card, and T. subintegra Demar. & P. Varde is evaluated. A preliminary report on the taxonomy and distribution of Tayloria subgen. Orthodon is given.
