Monographs Details: Encalypta procera Bruch
Authority: Buck, William R. 1987. Bryostephane Steereana: A Collection of Bryological Papers Presented to William Campbell Steere On The Occasion of His 80th Birthday. Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 45: 1-749.
Discussion:One plant, 1.45-1.56 m. The thin-walled, epapillose cell-groups in lower leaf laminae are mostly absent in the fossils, but a weak basal marginal border is evident in two leaves. The leaves are blunt, and their margins are plane or erect near the apex. The costae are subpercurrent. The features match those of sterile plants of E. procera, but it is impossible to rule out all species in the E. rhaptocarpa-E. vulgaris complex (Horton, 1983).
