Notes:
Uleobryum contains three species, two species in the Neotropics - U. occultum (Roth) R.H. Zander (West Indies), U. peruvianum Broth. (Central America, West Indies and tropical Andes). The genus is distinguished by the minute habit, spathulate or elliptical leaves, plane margins, well developed costa, distal pluripapillose cells, and globose-apiculate cleistocarpic capsules. The generic name, given by Viktor Brotherus (“Genus novum peregrinatori meritissimo E. Ule dedicatum,…”) honors the German botanist Ernst Ule (1854-1915), one of the ardent plant collectors of tropical South America at the turn of the 20th century.
