Notes     (Last Modified On 10/8/2017)

The Fabroniaceae contain 5-6 genera and fewer than 100 species, probably closer to 50 or less, widely distributed in temperate and tropical regions; in the Neotropics with two genera and six species. The family is placed in the order Hypnales. Anacamptodon previously placed in the Fabroniaceae is now included in the Amblystegiaceae. Discussions related to the Fabroniaceae were given in a series of papers by Buck and Crum (1978) and Buck (1980, 1981), transferring several genera to an emended Myriniaceae.
