Borovichev, E.A., N.A. Konstantinova & E.N. Andrejeva. The genus Sauteria Nees (Cleveaceae, Marchantiophyta) in Russia

Arctoa (2012) 21: 181-188

The genus Sauteria (Nees) Nees has been revised in Russia. All specimens of Sauteria from Russia are referred to S. alpina. Morphological description, ecology and a distribution map of the species are provided. Differences from similar species are discussed. Most features considered earlier as important for distinguishing species of Sauteria are shown to be highly variable and cannot be used as diagnostics in intrageneric systematics. Sauteria japonica (Shimizu & S. Hatt.) S. Hatt. is synonymized with S. alpina (Nees) Nees.
