(780.) E. (Brachythecium?) semiasperum, C. M. & Kindb. (n. sp.); Canadian Musci, No. 507.
Plant loosely tufted, green. Secondary stems sparingly radiculose, branching at one side; branches generally simple, acute, 1 cm. long or shorter. Leaves subpatent, from a broad-cordate base, fine acuminate, decurrent, nearly entire; alar cells numerous, reaching to the costa; the other cells narrower, the lower dilated; costa vanishing above the middle. Capsule small, suboval, erect or inclined; teeth papillose above; segments shorter than the high basilar membrane; lid narrow, short-rostellate; pedicel rough at least to the middle, smooth below, 0.6 cm. long. Perichetial leaves suboblong, short-acuminate, erect, entire and nerveless. Monoecious.
The species is well-distinct from all our Eurhynchia and rather allied to Brachythecium plumosum.
