general taxon notes:
Mitthyridium is closely related to the limbate taxa of Syrrhopodon, from which it differs primarily in its border of hyaline cells only one layer thick and its repent stems with erect-ascending branches. Mitthyridium occurs primarily in the tropics, mainly at low elevations. Two species occur in China.
