Notes     (Last Modified On 5/18/2013)
The Plagiotheciaceae, as treated here, is monogeneric, containing only Plagiothecium; previously classifications have included several other genera; see Buck and Ireland (1985) for a historical overview. This genus probably should be placed in the Hypnaceae; there are no defining characters that readily separate this taxon from that family.
Una familia monogenérica localizada en el orden Hypnales. No hay una sola característica o grupo de características que separen fácilmente las Plagiotheciaceae e Hypnaceae. Clasificaciones anteriores han incluido otros varios géneros en la familia, ver Buck e Ireland (1985) para una perspectiva histórica.
