Discussion

Since the description of Hennediella stanfordensis, this mundivagant species has engendered a flurry of publications on its human-oriented distribution, its discovery in Europe, and the taxonomic significance of the eperistomate sporophyte (e.g., D. G. Long 1979; A. J. E. Smith and H. L. K. Whitehouse 1974; Whitehouse 1975).
