Notes:
Sanionia contains three species with a mostly North Hemisphere distribution (Hedenäs, 1989); only the species given below is known in the Neotropics. Previous and some recent authors places this genus within Drepanocladus for which is shared the falcate, long lanceolate leaves, gradually long acuminate apex, slender single costa, linear median and upper laminal cells and well differentiated alar cells, but Sanionia differs from that genus by the rather numerous pseudoparaphyllia, and strongly plicate leaves.
 
Sanionia contiene actualmente tres especies distribuidas mayormente en el Hemisferio Norte (Hedenäs, 1989); sólo se conoce en el Neotrópico la especie dada abajo. Autores previos y algunos recientes ubican el género dentro de Drepanocladus por que comparten las hojas falcadas largo lanceoladas, el ápice gradualmente largo acuminado, costa simple y delgada, células superiores y mediales de la lámina lineares y células alares bien diferenciadas, pero Sanionia difiere de ese género por los pseudoparáfilos algo numerosos, y hojas fuertemente plicadas.
