Bastow, Richard Austin (1885) Jungermannia retuculata. Papers & Proceedings of the Royal Society of Tasmania . pp. 311-312.
This genus is named in honour of Louis Jungermann, a German botanist. The specimen now submitted for your observation under
the microscope was gathered from the Springs on the side of
Mount Wellington, on the 10th March last, close to a clear "but somewhat rapid" stream. After a protracted examination
of the specimen, in its dry state, when moistened, as an
opaque object, and as a transparent one mounted in glycerine
medium, it appears to be different to any species of Jungermannia
yet identified in Tasmania, and unlike any
described in Flora Tasmania.
