general taxon notes:
Leskeadelphus is monospecific, confined to the tropical Andes. The genus is characterized by the rather soft, glossy yellowish-green to golden plants, often rather slender and long acuminate leaf apex, distally tapered and weak costa, papillose, narrow exostome teeth, absence of an endostomial basal membrane, and linear segments. Pseudodimerodontium is a synonym.
