Abstract

A small family of two genera, Loxoma, restricted to North Island, New Zealand, and Loxsomopsis with one or perhaps two species in Costa Rica and the Andean region. The spores are trilete with a nearly plain exospore of two layers and a two-layered perispore. The inner perispore consists of tuberculate or rugate, more or less coalescent elements that are usually covered by granulate material.
