Wilsoniella contains about nine species widely distributed in the tropics and subtropics, primarily from the Southern Hemisphere. Two species in the Neotropics, W. flaccida (R. S. Williams) Broth. originally described as a new genus, Teretidens in the Pottiaceae, is from Bolivia (900 m), and W. subvaginans H. A. Crum & Steere known from Puerto Rico. The genus is characterized by the rather flaccid, oblong-lanceolate or ligulate leaves, bluntly acute to obtuse apex, subpercurrent costa, thin-walled, lax, long hexagonal to rhomboidal median cells, elongate, rather flexuose seta, and spirally- to papillose-striate, and divided peristome teeth.
