general taxon notes:
Leptobryum contains two species distributed in the temperate regions; both species found in the Neotropics. In Bolivia a single species is present, L. wilsonii (Mitt.) Broth. The genus is characterized by the flexuose long-subulate leaves from an oblong-ovate base or erect short ovate-lanceolate leaves, the conspicuously elongate and slender seta, shiny, erect to pendulous, pyriform, small mouthed capsules, and well developed double peristome. Treatment follows the recent revision of Arts† (2001).
