1. Schistostega D. Mohr, Observ. Bot. 26. 1803.

[Greek schistos, split or divided, and stego, cover, apparently alluding to erroneous observation that operculum splits]

Plants fernlike, bluish gray-green, occasionally with a reddish purple tint, scattered, as clustered or tufted frondiform shoots. Stems 4-7 mm from a protonema composed of filamentous strands of tiny, clear, spheric cells.
