general taxon notes:
Pylaisiadelpha was established by Cardot (1912), including two species, P. rhaphidostegioides (Card.) Card. and P. drepanioides Card. According to Buck (1984), the concept of these two species matches with that of Brotherella. Since Pylaisiadelpha has priority over Brotherella, therefore, it should replace the latter. However, Ando (1989) considered these two genera different. Pylaisiadelpha at present consists of four species. Two species are known from China.
