Notes:
Symbelpharis contains about 10 species with a pantropical highland distribution; five species in the Neotropics. The genus is characterized by the crispate-curled or-squarrose leaves that are lance-subulate from an obovate leaf base, narrow costa, smooth laminal cells that are quadrate above, long rectangular below, undifferentiated alar cells, erect seta, and divided, vertically striate or papillose peristome teeth. Symblepharis may be confused with Holomitrium. Both are epiphytes and occur in similar habitats, the latter however exhibits long sheathing perichaetial leaves, entire peristome teeth, and generally distinct differentiated alar cells. Symblepharis tenuis R.S. Williams from Peru is a synonym of Dicranella campylophyllum Taylor (Anisothecium).
 
Symblepharis contiene ca. 10 especies distribuidas en tierras altas pantropicales; cinco especies en el Neotrópico. El género se caracteriza por las hojas crispado-rizadas o –escuarrosas, lanceo-subuladas desde una base obovada, costa angosta, células de la lámina lisas, cuadradas arriba y largo-rectangulares abajo, células alares indiferenciadas, setas erectas, y dientes del peristoma partidos, verticalmente estriados o papilosos. Symblepharis puede ser confundido con Holomitrium. Ambos son epifitos y se desarrollan en hábitats similares, este último sin embargo, exhibe hojas periqueciales largo envainadoras, dientes del peristoma enteros, y generalmente células alares conspicuamente diferenciadas.
