Eucamptodontopsis is a neotropical genus of three species. In Central America the genus is distinguished from Holomitrium by the combination of its spirally contorted leaves and crenulate leaf margins. Schliephackea differs by its sharply serrate leaf margins, pendent habit and shorter upper leaf cells. In Eucamptodontopsis the leaves are moderately to widely spaced, the margins are crenulate above and the upper leaf cells are elongate.
