Vittia contains two or more species. The aquatic habitat, the coarse and wiry gametophytes with ovate-lanceolate leaves with unistratose or with bi- or multistratose margins merging at the apex with the strong costa, the partial to fully bi- to tristratose lamina, and firm- to thick-walled laminal cells are features of the genus. The name Limbidium has been employed by some authors, see Hedenäs (2003) for the nomenclatural problems associated with this name.
