In 1938 "One Hundred Iowa Mosses" (1) were distributed to ten herbaria. In that distribution Number 4, "Anomodon viticulosus" was wrongly identified. The plant is Anomodon minor (Beauv.) Lindb., like the figure in Sullivant's Icones, pl. 74. Much more common in Iowa is a smaller form, everywhere on trees, distributed as No. 2. To avoid such confusion as I fell into, this form should probably be named and entered in the manuals. Number 44 "Fissidens viridulus" had better be referred to F. minutulus Sull., according to the Moss Flora of North America (3). Number 62 "Leptodictyum riparium longifolium" should be called forma flacoidum (L. & J.), rather than longifolium, according to advice from Dr. A. J. Grout, a correction for which I am grateful.
