Notes     (Last Modified On 10/6/2017)
Gertrudiella, a monotypic genus of the dry inter-Andean valleys and possible Chaco and Chaco Serrano of the southern tropical Andes (Peru, Bolivia and northwestern Aregentina), is placed in a separate subfamily of the Pottiaceae, the Gertrudielloideae (see Zander, 1993: 74-76). Distinguishing features include the recurved leaf margins, unistratose lamina with cells bulging on upper surface and flat on the lower median surface, margins with up to 20 rows of cells that are bulging and papillose on both surfaces. The costa exhibits several significant features, including the strong reniform single band of stereids below the several rows of guide cells. The generic name, originally Gertrudia was given by T. Herzog in dedication to his wife, Gertrude.
