Notes     (Last Modified On 10/7/2017)
Streptocalypta contains four species, of which three species are found in the Neotropics, S. lorentziana Müll. Hal. (Peru to Argentina), S. santosii (E.B. Bartram) R.H. Zander (Mexico), and S. tortelloides (Cardot) R.H. Zander (Mexico). The genus is characterized by the several layers of guide cells, ventral stereids absent or nearly so; Tortella is closely related, sharing features that include the plane leaf margins and distinct “V” of the basal cells. Streptocalypta is apparently rather rare, known only from a few collections but likely to be found elsewhere in the Neotropics.

Zander (México) y S. tortelloides (Cardot) R.H. Zander (México). El género se caracteriza por presentar varias capas de células guía, estereidas ventrales ausentes o casi ausentes; Tortella está estrechamente relacionada, compartiendo características que incluyen márgenes planos de las hojas y una "V" conspicua formada por las células basales. Streptocalypta aparentemente es bastante raro, conocido sólo por unas pocas colecciones pero probablemente se encuentra en otros sitios del Neotrópico.
