general taxon notes:
Species of Floribundariausually grow on tree trunks and branches, rarely on wet rock surfaces in tropical and southern subtropical forests. There are some 18 species of this genus in the world (Crosby et al. 2000). Five species are known in China. Floribundaria torquata C.-K. Wang & S.-H. Lin (C.-K. Wang & S.-H. Lin 1975) reported from Taiwan cannot be verified at this time.

Hedwigia 44: 301. 1905.
 
Plants slender, dull, yellowish green or yellowish brown, not glossy, in loosely pendulous mats. Primary stems creeping; secondary stems pendulous, loosely branched or irregularly pinnately branched. Stem and branch leaves similar, but branch leaves smaller, complanately appressed when dry, cordate, oblong-ovate, ovate-lanceolate to narrowly lanceolate, often gradually acuminate above, with a slender or hairy apex; margins usually serrulate or coarsely serrate near the apex; costae single, slender, vanishing about mid-leaf; leaf cells elongate-rhomboidal to linear, thin-walled, often opaque, rarely pellucid, finely pluripapillose, sometimes unipapillose; alar cells slightly differentiated; axillary hairs consisting of 1–2 brownish, short basal cells and 1–2 hyaline apical cells. Dioicous. Inner perichaetial leaves narrowly ovate-lanceolate, with a long, slender to piliferous apex, often ecostate. Setae short, smooth, often curved; capsules oblong-ovoid to shortly cylindrical; opercula conic, obliquely short- to long rostrate; annuli consisting of 1–2 rows of large, thick-walled cells; peristome double; exostome teeth lanceolate to narrowly lanceolate, densely papillose above, cross-striolate at the base; endostome segments linear-lanceolate, nearly as long as the teeth, keeled, papillose, usually perforate; basal membrane low to high; cilia often absent, sometimes rudimentary. Calyptrae cucullate or mitrate, lobed at the base, often hairy, sometimes smooth. Spores spherical, finely papillose.
