general taxon notes:
The genus was first described as monotypic from North America and considered to be endemic (Anderson 1980). Buck (1987) added a second species, B. vivicolor (Broth. & Dix.) Buck from India. The genus again became monotypic after Bryocrumia andersonii (Bartr.) Anderson was synonymized with B. vivicolor (Anderson et al. 1990).
