Notes     (Last Modified On 5/9/2013)
The suberect capsules and the somewhat spirally arranged oblong-linear exothecial cells are further distinctive features of the genus. The position of the chlorocysts in relation to the leucocysts has been noted as closer to the lower (dorsal surface), however in the mid region they can actually be equal distance from the lower and upper surfaces. Originally placed in Leucobryum, and still so by some authors.
En este género se ha observado que la posición de los clorocistos en relación a los leucocistos es más cercana a la superficie inferior (dorsal), sin embargo en la región media estos pueden estar a igual distancia de las superficies inferior y superior. Otros rasgos distintivos son las cápsulas suberectas y las células exoteciales oblongo-lineares dispuestas algo espiraladamente. Fue ubicado originalmente en Leucobryum, y mantenido así por algunos autores.
