general taxon notes:
The genus Camptothecium was treated as a synonym of Homalothecium Schimp. by Crosby and Magill (1981) and Hofmann (1998). Its species have been placed under various genera, such as Brachythecium and Palamocladium Müll. Hal. Two species of Camptothecium from China were still recognized by Ignatov and Afonina (1992). Until further studies regarding the taxonomic status of these species can be done, we here recognize Camptothecium with two species from China.
