Notes     (Last Modified On 5/6/2009)
general taxon notes:
Hondaella caperata is similar to Campylodontium flavescens (Hook.) Bosch & Sande Lac. [= Mesonodon flavescens (Hook.) W. R. Buck] of the Entodontaceae, but it differs from the latter by the falcate-secund and plicate leaves with distinctive double costae.
