Development of the enigmatic peristome of Timmia megapolitana (Timmiaceae; Bryophyta)
American Journal of Botany
The Timmiaceae (Bryophyta) have been traditionally classified within the Bryales based on peristome architecture. Phylogenetic analyses of nucleotide sequences have revealed relationships that are incongruent with this hypothesis and have implicated an origin for this lineage early in the radiation of arthrodontous mosses (Bryopsida). This unexpected phylogenetic placement raises important questions about the evolutionary significance of the Timmia peristome, which differs from all other mossesdoi:10.3732/ajb.94.3.460 pmid:21636416 fatcat:56gzapgyz5dujckhcyutmrvrsy
