4. Bruchia fusca E. Britton, Bull. Torrey Bot. Club. 21: 361, plate 216. 1894.

Distal leaves ovate, 0.6-1.3 mm, leaf base not differentiated in shape; distal laminal cells short-rectangular. Sexual condition autoicous. Seta 0.3-1.2 mm. Capsule neck short, obovate. Spores pitted. Calyptra smooth.

Capsules mature spring. Soil, commonly surrounding quartz pebbles; low to moderate elevations; Md., N.C., Tex.

Bruchia fusca is much like B. hallii and differs almost exclusively in the ornamentation of the spores, a trait that may prove to be an intraspecies genetic difference.
