Notes     (Last Modified On 10/30/2017)
general taxon notes:

Mironia contains three species restricted to the cordilleras of the Neotropics. Previously placed in Morinia Cardot. The genus is similar to Bryoerythrophyllum and Leptodontium but differs from the former by leaves keeled, margins bistratose and leaf tips occasionally fragile, and from the latter by the presence of a stem central strand and differentiated costal epidermis.
