Linder (1929) accepted two species in Hobsonia,
viz. H. gigaspora Berkeley in Massee and
H. mirabilis. Hobsonia gigaspora was described
from Venezuela and recorded from Dominica,
Guadeloupe, Grenada, Trinidad, and Venezuela;
H. mirabilis was originally described from N ew
York State and recorded from Tennessee. Martin
(1959) studied the types and reduced H. gigaspora
to synonymy with H. mirabilis. This synonymy
was accepted by Dennis (1970). Linder
