comparison of molecular phylogenetic analysis
(maximum parsimony and haplotype networks) with
morphological approach to species taxonomy is given, revealing a probable rapid
speciation in terminal Brachythecium salebrosum-clade.
Within the latter, there are rather clearly morphologically delimited taxa with identical ITS, the most variable of the widely
used molecular markers. Three new species are described based on morphology. A
key for the species identification in
