general taxon notes:
The genus Miyabea, containing 3 species, only occurs in East Asia. In China, the genus was first collected in Huang Shan (Mt.), Anhui province. It was later discovered in Mt. West Tianmo and northeastern China. The distribution of this genus is mainly restricted in the areas of east coastal mountains, north of 30°N and east of 110°E.
 
Systematically, Miyabea is very close to Haplohymenium. Both genera have imbricate leaves when dry, usually grow on tree trunks, and lack or have reduced endostomal development. However, the absence of lamellae and longitudinal division of the peristome teeth in Haplohymenium differentiates it from Miyabea.
