Notes     (Last Modified On 7/8/2013)

Atractylocarpus contains nine species with a mostly pantropical distribution; three species in the Neotropics. Padberg and Frahm (1985) include Metzerella and Metzleria in their treatment of Atractylocarpus. Allen (1994), in agreement with Williams (1913), placed Atractylocarpus in synonymy with Dicranodontium, based on the similarity of the gametophyte, and the rather unimpressive seta difference in which the form is erect or flexuose and in the latter cygneous as in Campylopus.

Padberg y Frahm (1985) incluyeron Metzerella y Metzleria en su tratamiento de Atractylocarpus. Allen (1994), en concordancia con Williams (1913), ubica Atractylocarpus en sinonimia con Dicranodontium, en base a la similaridad del gametofito, y la diferencia algo no destacable de la forma de la seta, erecta o flexuosa en el primero y císnea como en Campylopus en el último.
