A monospecific genus represented by Aerolindigia capillacea (Hornsch.) M. Menzel. The genus is recorded from the montane areas of the Neotropics. Aerolindigia is known by the epiphytic habit, relatively short costa (1/3–1/2 lamina length), and papillose seta. Both Menzel (1991) and Visnadi and Allen (1991) agreed to the placement of this species in the Brachytheciaceae, the latter however placed this species in Rhynchostegiella, a mostly north temperate genus. Further comments are given under Lindigia.
