"Java  Moss's true identity  has been identified  as _Taxiphyllum barbeiri_

 another publication (Takaki et al., 1982). Despite these two clarifications  
made in 1982, the scientific name has continued to be quoted erroneously as  
"Vesicularia dubyana. . ."
Thanks for the clarification.  How does the Singapore moss differ in  
appearance from the Java moss?
