Abstract

Warburgiella spinososeta is described and illustrated as a new moss species and a new genus record from Hawaiʻi. The new species is morphologically similar to W. cupressinoides and W. leptorhynchoides to some extent, but it differs in having entirely smooth, strongly thick-walled, porose laminal cells, a strikingly spinose upper seta, and a campanulate-cucullate calyptra with a papillose apex and an entire base.
