Notes     (Last Modified On 10/7/2017)
The Renauldia contains about 10 species distributed in the tropics of America and Africa. The genus is characterized by the secondary subdendroid or pendent secondary stems, spirally-foliate leaves, not ranked, and the costa absent or single or short and forked. In the Neotropics the three species of Renauldia are separated geographically, R. mexicana (Mitt.) H. A. Crum (Mexico), R. paradoxica B. H. Allen (Panama, Guyana, French Guiana), R. peruvianum (Mitt.) Broth.(Peru). The generic name honors the French bryologist Ferdinand Renauld (1837-1910).
