general taxon notes:


About seventeen species are still accepted in Hygroamblystegium, but only four of them are better understood (Crosby et al. 2000). Three species were listed from China (Redfearn et al. 1996). Records of H. noterophilum (Sull. & Lesq.) Warnst. from several Chinese provinces were based on mistaken identifications, and these specimens belong to Cratoneuron filicinum. Hygroamblystegium fluviatile (Hedw.) Loeske cannot be verified at this time. One species of Hygroamblystegium is recognized here.
