general taxon notes:
Isodrepanium is monotypic, confined to the Neotropics. Sporophytes not observed in the Tropical Andes; based on Florschütz-de Waard (1986). This genus is only likely to be confused with some members of Lepidopilum exhibiting sigmoid leaves, but that genus lacks the small, thickened 4-5 rows of stem cells, and strongly porose median and distal leaf cells that are found in Isodrepanium.
 
Isodrepanium es monotípico, confinado al Neotrópico. Esporofitos no observados en los Andes tropicales; en base al tratamiento de Florschütz-de Waard (1986). Este género sólo puede ser confundido con algunos miembros de Lepidopilum que presenta hojas sigmoides, pero este género carece de las 4-5 filas de células pequeñas y engrosadas del tallo, y las células mediales y distales de las hojas marcadamente porosas que se encuentran en Isodrepanium.
