general taxon notes:
When C. Müller (1897) published Fabronia schensiana, he did not mention spinulose costa on the leaf back. C. Gao et al. (1981) described F. microspora as having spinulose costa and differentiated spore morphology. In this treatment, Fabronia microspora is treated as a synonym of F. shensiana.
