general taxon notes:
Cardotiella contains five species from Mexico, Central and South America, South Africa, Madagascar and associated islands. The genus is distinguished by the coarse intertwining mats, ascending straight or curved branches, 5-ranked, spirally arranged, long decurrent, short ovate-lanceolate leaves, fragile and deciduous apex, strongly unipapillose, quadrate-rounded laminal cells and decurrent leaf bases of inflated cells. The generic name honors the French bryologist Jules Cardot (1860-1934).
