  • remarks: Stoneburner (1985: 312) synonymised Weissia viridula var. gymnostoma with Trichostomum brachydontium. Fife (1995: 331) regarded this a synonym of Weissia patula, but considered W. patula a New Zealand endemic. There is a specimen of W. patula from New South Wales in MEL (Woolls s.n. (MEL 1002869), det. P. Sollman).
