Notes:
An Andean monotypic genus, presently recorded from Venezuela and Bolivia; to be expected in Colombia south through Peru in the high montane transition to shrubby subpáramo and moist puna. In aspect Callicostellopsis is somewhat similar to Cyclodictyon in the rather lax habit, however the latter exhibits a marginal leaf border, smooth laminal cells, and sporophytically the seta is usually smooth, with the exostome furrowed and cross-striate.
 
Un género andino monoespecífico, actualmente conocido en Venezuela y Bolivia; se espera encontrarlo en Colombia al sur hasta Perú en la transición de montano alto a subpáramo arbustivo y puna húmeda. En apariencia Callicostellopsis es un poco similar a Cyclodictyon en el hábito bastante laxo, sin embargo este último exhibe hojas bordeadas, células de la lámina lisas, y esporofíticamente la seta generalmente es lisa, con el exostoma acanalado y estrías cruzadas.
