As treated here, Octoblepharaceae is a monogeneric family placed in the order Dicranales. Octoblepharum has traditionally been placed in the Leucobryaceae, however recent studies suggest a relationship either close to or within the Calymperaceae; see Salazar Allen (1991) for a discussion summarizing various views up to that time, and Goffinet et al. (2009) for a recent summary.


Una familia monogenérica localizada en el orden Dicranales. Otra ubicación alternativa de la familia incluye a Calymperaceae y Leucobryaceae; la última ha sido la familia tradicionalmente aceptada por varios autores. Ver la descripción genérica.
