  Comment: 'Both P[lagiochila] tridenticulata (Michaux 1803) Dumo. 1835 and P. corniculata (Dum. 1931) Dum. 1835 are automaticallyl typified as Jungermannia tridenticulata Michaux (Michaux, 1803), whose type is conspecific with Bazzania trilobaba (L.) S. Gray. They are misapplied for the Plagiochila species in quesiton, though in such a way universallly used in the past' (Grolle, 1983)
