Abstract

Bryhnia graminicolor (Brid.) Grout is reported new to the state of Texas. A distribution map of B. graminicolor is provided for the south central states of Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. A key to the genera in the Brachytheciaceae in Texas is provided, and relevant morphological characters are discussed to differentiate B. graminicolor from similar species found in Texas.
