general taxon notes:
Papillaria became a synonym of Meteorium after Buck (1994) redefined the concept of Meteorium. However, many names are still left under Papillaria. Crosby et al. (2000) listed 46 names of Papillaria in the world. In this study, Papillaria is still treated as a separate genus from Meteorium represent by one species in China.
