This hepatic was discovered by Goebel in Java, and
described by him as recently as 1891- It was subsequently
recorded from Tahiti, Samoa, and New Zealand, and now I
have gathered it in dense woods on the southern slopes of
Mt. Wellington, near the end of Strickland Avenue, and
also near Forked Creek. Specimens have been forwarded
to Stephani, who confirms the identification.
Treubia is of great interest to the Bryologist, for it
combines reproductive and fruiting characters of Aneuraceae
with the leafy morphology of the Acrogyneae.
We must always remember
that leaves of mosses and leaves of flowering plants are only alike in name and function. They can have no relationship one to another. They belong to different categories, and cannot truthfully be compared, except so far as their function.
