general taxon notes:


Campylium porphyreticum has been known only from the type specimen. Hedenäs (1997) considered that it should be treated under Campylophyllum based on the following features: plants small, stem leaves erect, costae short or double, alar cells small and distinctly differentiated, and pseudoparaphyllia triangular, lanceolate, or filamentous; however, he did not transfer this species to Campylophyllum. The concept of Campylophyllum described by Hedenäs (1997) was much broader than it had been circumscribed before. The species is still kept in Campylium here at this time.
