Other features such as shape, size and precise location of the papillae are virtually impossible to assess under light microscopy, and, to our knowledge, there have been no scanning electron microscopy SEM studies characterizing papillae diversity in the Pilotrichaceae. In acrocarpous mosses, such studies are more common, for example, in the Fissidentaceae Belin et al.

In such studies, SEM has revealed important taxonomic features, such as papillae shape, size and origin. Current observations of papillae within Pilotrichaceae are mostly restricted to presence or absence, number per cell unipapillose or pluripapillose and location on the leaf apex or base. In the present study, we use SEM to investigate further papillae development and morphology across genera in Pilotrichaceae and a published phylogeny Buck et al.

We sampled at least two species of every papillose genus of the Pilotrichaceae. For Hypnella diversifolia Mitt. Jaeger, three specimens were sampled because the material is readily accessible in herbaria in Brazil. Two species of Cyclodictyon Mitt. We also investigated Hypnella pilifera Hook. Jaeger, although it was not sampled in Buck et al. Overall, we studied the following species and specimens: Callicostella colombica R. Williams Colombia, Churchill et al. Brazil, Soares; no.

Guadeloupe, Duss; no. Jaeger Colombia, Ramos et al. Preparation of material. For each plant, lateral and dorsal leaves were taken from branches. As in the pleurocarps, the branches are always generating new leaves, so they were removed from the tip younger leaves all the way to the base older leaves. After drying, leaves were mounted on stubs and sputter-coated with gold and gold-palladium layers using two sputter coaters: a Hummer 6. The sputter-coated specimens were kept in a dessicator containing silica gel before SEM visualization. All cell measurements were taken from mature dorsal and lateral leaves, and at least 10 measurements of papilla dimensions were made for each specimen.

Twenty-five papillose cells for each individual were also measured under SEM Tab.

In the Pilotrichaceae genera evaluated, papillae were found only on abaxial leaf surfaces. Basipetal papilla development along the leaf was observed in all species, with younger papillae at the leaf base and mature papillae in the apical region. In addition, the papillae remained prominent even when cells collapsed due to specimen preparation, suggesting that papillae in Pilotrichaceae are solid and created by thickening of cell walls. Pluripapillose taxa had cells that were five times longer than they were wide, whereas those of the unipapillose taxa were irregularly isodiametric Tab.

Seven distinct kinds of mature papillae occur and can be referred to as cylindrical, denticulate, filiform, forked, rounded, semi-conical and stellate Fig. These types can be distinguished as follows:. Cylindrical papillae are simple not branched protuberances that are elongate and acute, 1. These papillae have "striae" that are vertical in relation to the papilla length and occur as singletons at the geometric center of the cell Fig.

This type was observed in the majority of mature leaf cells on any given leaf. This kind of papilla was observed only in Callicostellopsis meridensis Fig. These papillae have "striae" that are twisted in relation to the papilla length. Four to five such papillae typically occur on a single cell, and are distributed regularly along the axis of the cell. They are observed in the majority of mature cells on any given leaf.

When young, this type is a small outgrowth, with the same diameter throughout but shorter than mature papilla. This kind of papilla was observed only in Hypnella pilifera Fig. These papillae are smooth.

Ten such papillae occur per cell and are irregularly distributed along the axis. Young papillae are wider but shorter than mature papillae. This kind of papilla was observed in Pilotrichidium antillarum and P. However, in the former, papillae were observed only on the apical cells, whereas in the latter, they were observed on all leaf cells Fig. These papillae have "striae" that are vertical in relation to the papilla length, typically five per cell, regularly distributed along the cell axis of the majority of mature leaf cells on any given leaf.

There are morphological changes during maturation; the papillae start out as simple, unbranched outgrowths Fig. This kind of papilla was observed only in Hypnella diversifolia Fig. These papillae have "striae" that are vertical in relation to the papilla length. Three to five papillae are regularly distributed along the cell axis of the majority of mature cells in a leaf. These papillae also undergo morphological changes during their development; they start out as simple outgrowths that later grow branches. This kind of papilla was observed only in Hypnella pallescens Fig.

Semi-conical papillae are simple not branched , ca. These papillae have "striae" that are vertical in relation to the papilla length and occur on the majority of mature cells, always in the center of the cell.

When young, they are small outgrowths, with the same diameter but shorter than mature papillae. This kind of papilla was observed only in Callicostella pallida Fig. Denticulate papillae are simple not branched but with short acute protuberances, giving the cell a toothed appearance. The papilla are ca. These papillae have "striae" that are regular in relation to the papilla length.

There are two per cell on the apical cells of the limbidium only, forming a denticulate margin.
