Notes:

Herzogiella contains seven species largely confined to temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere; a single species, given below, in the Neotropics (Ireland, 1993). The genus is characterized by a combination of characters, glossy plants with complanate, lanceolate leaves, margins plane and serrate above, serrulate below to near base, absence of pseudoparaphyllia, and with erect capsules. Previously placed in Ctenidiadelphus (cf. Bartram, 1948), and more recently in Sharpiella. The generic name honors the German bryologist Theodor Herzog (1880-1961), who contributed significantly to our knowledge of neotropical bryophytes, particularly of Bolivia.

 

Herzogiella contiene siete especies confinadas a regiones templadas del hemisferio norte. Sólo una especie es registrada en el Neotrópico: Herzogiella cylindricarpa (Cardot) Z. Iwats. El género se caracteriza por la siguiente combinación de caracteres, plantas brillantes con hojas lanceoladas, complanadas, márgenes planos y serrados arriba, serrulados abajo hasta cerca de la base, sin pseudoparáfilos y con cápsulas erectas. El nombre genérico hace honor al briólogo alemán Theodor Herzog (1880-1961), quién contribuyó significativamente al conocimiento de las briofitas neotropicales, especialmente de Bolivia.
