Grolle (1989) united Strepsilejeunea subcrenulata Herzog with the younger name Cheilolejeunea papillata Solari. However, transferring the former name to Cheilolejeunea was blocked by the existence of the earlier name Cheilolejeunea subcrenulata (Spruce) R.M.Schust. so Grolle used next available name which was Solari's Cheilolejeunea papillata. Unfortunately, the latter name is also a later homonym to Cheilolejeunea papillata (Herzog) Kachroo, which Grolle overlooked. Thus, the taxon is lacking a legitimate name in Cheilolejeunea. Therefore, we here replace the earliest name with a new name in the genus.
