Genus Webera

Genus WeberaGenus WEBERA, Hedw.

The members of this genus are similar to those of the genus Bryum, the essential characters which separate the two are that Webera has rhomboidal-hexagonal, narrow, and more or less linear leaf-cells with a slender vein, while Bryum has rhomboidal-hexagonal, smooth, usually broad and loose cells, with a solid, round vein generally passing beyond the apex of the leaf.

The name was given by J. G. Hedwig, a German botanist, in honour of G. H. Weber.
