Abstract

Jungermannia afoninae is described from the mountains of South Siberia based on a complex taxonomical approach exploring critical reinvestigation of morphological features and analyses of newly obtained trnL–trnF and trnG-intron cpDNA sequences from six Jungermannia specimens incorporated into a previously published dataset. Description and illustrations of the new species are provided with notes on its differentiation from allied species, ecology and distribution.
