Notes     (Last Modified On 10/8/2017)
A monospecific neotropical genus, Puiggariopsis may possibly be confused with Mittenothamnium or Ctenidium but neither of these genera exhibit leaves that are strongly plicate, and lack alar cells that are both thick-walled and porose. The report of Puiggariopsis from Peru is based on a specimen of Mittenothamnium.

El reporte de Puiggariopsis para Perú está basado en una especie de Mittenothamnium.
