general taxon notes:
Pseudotaxiphyllum is close to Isopterygium, but differs in the absence of pseudoparaphyllia, having well developed annuli, and dioicous sexual condition. It consists of 7 species in the world; four species are found in China. The reports on Pseudotaxiphyllum arquifolium (Bosch & Sande Lac.) Iwats. and P. distichaceum (Mitt.) Iwats. cannot be confirmed. Two species are treated here.
