Henicodium appears to be a monotypic genus with a pantropical distribution (Buck, 1989). The genus is readily distinguished by the erect to distally appressed, oblong-short lanceolate leaves, strongly revolute margins, slender, single costa, 1-2 papillae over cell lumen, and well defined alar region. The papillae are often rather indistinct, but are readily observed along the recurved leaf margins or plications. Leucodontopsis is now replaced by the older name Henicodium.


Henicodium parece ser un género monotípico con distribución pantropical. Henicodium geniculatum (Mitt.) W.R. Buck se distingue fácilmente por las hojas erectas a distalmente adpresas, corto-oblongas lanceoladas, márgenes marcadamente revolutos, delgados, costa simple, 1-2 papilas sobre el lumen celular y región alar bien definida. Las papilas a menudo son poco distinguibles, pero se observan fácilmente a lo largo de los márgenes recurvados o dobleces de las hojas.
