Notes:
Allioniellopsis is an endemic, monospecific genus of the tropical Andes. Noteworthy features of Allioniellopsis include the homomallously arranged, numerous, small sporophytes with the peristome teeth represented only by a somewhat reduced hyaline bordered exostome. Only known from three collections, the original (type collection) made by Allioni in 1909, and two additional collections, one each from Ecuador and Peru from the lower eastern Andean slopes. The generic name honors I’abbé Michel Allioni who made excellent collections along the slopes of the Ecuadorian Oriente in the provinces of Azuay and Morona-Santiago; in 1911 Allioni, like Gustav Wallis 33 years earlier, died of yellow fever in Ecuador.

Los rasgos notables de Allioniellopsis incluyen las hojas de ordenamiento homómalo y los numerosos esporofitos pequeños con un peristoma representado sólo por dientes del exostoma algo reducidos y con borde hialino. Sólo se conocen tres colecciones, la original (colección tipo) hecha por Allioni en 1909, y dos colecciones adicionales, una de Ecuador y otra de Perú. El nombre genérico honra a I’abbé Michel Allioni quien hizo colecciones excelentes a lo largo de las vertientes del oriente ecuatoriano en las provincias de Azuay y Morona-Santiago; en 1911 Allioni, al igual que Gustav Wallis 33 años antes, murió de fiebre amarilla en Ecuador.
