Aptroot, A. 2011: Mossen en korstmossen op aangevoerde olijfbomen en geďmporteerde stenige substraten [Mosses and lichens on introduced Olive trees with notes on further introduced mosses]. - Buxbaumiella 90: 31-37. [RLL List # 224 / Rec.# 33251]
Abstract: Imported olive trees were checked for epiphytes in a number of garden centres. The introduced non-native mosses Fabronia pusilla and Zygodon catarinoi were repeatedly found in garden supply centres on olive trees which are imported from Spain. The introduced lichen Candelariella viae-lacteae was also found on one olive tree. All are mediterranean species not previously known from the Netherlands and not yet established as indigenous. The equally introduced non-native Fontinalis hypnoides was found in water in a large flower pot. Some other exotic species on display or even sold at garden supply centres are mentioned. Further records of introductions on rock include Racomitrium sudeticum from Zweden, Syntrichia inermis from Israel and Braunia spec., Platygyriella densa, and Grimmia longirostris from Peru. None of these species are at present regarded as belonging to the Dutch moss or lichen flora, but now that they have been introduced already they might become naturalized in the future.
Notes: In Dutch with English abstract.
