Notes     (Last Modified On 5/3/2013)
Cratoneuron contains two species primarily distributed in temperate regions; only C. filicinum is present in the Neotropics. Ochyra (1989) treats Cratoneuron as a monotypic genus and sole member of the family Cratoneuraceae Mönk. in Pascher. The stout leaf costa, serrulate leaf margins, thick-walled laminal cells, sharply demarcated, enlarged alar cells, and paraphyllia when present, are diagnostic features of this species.

Son rasgos diagnóstico de esta especie , la costa foliar gruesa, márgenes de la hoja serrulados, células de la lámina con paredes gruesas, fuertemente demarcadas, células alares agrandadas y paráfilos, cuando están presentes.
