general taxon notes:

This is a monotypic genus. The absence of paraphyllia and the arrangement of laminal cells distinguish it from Cratoneuron. On the other hand, the presence of serrulate upper leaf margins and the abruptly narrowed leaves separate it from Drepanocladus or Calliergon. Ochyra (1989) created this genus based on these features. The sporophytes of Callialaria have not been discovered, and its systematic position needs further study.
