Parsimony analyses of 21 to 29 representatives of the family Bartramiaceae and of six outgroup taxa of Aulacomniaceae, Bryaceae, Plagiomniaceae, Meesiaceae, Rhizogoniaceae, and Timmiaceae were performed. Combined and separate analyses based on morphological data and three chloroplast loci (the genes rbcL and the rps4, and the trnL-trnF gene region) were carried out. Based on the combined analysis, the Bartramiaceae appear to be a monophyletic group including Anacolia, Bartramia, Breutelia, Conostomum, Fleischerobryum, Flowersia, Leiomela, Neosharpiella, Philonotis, and Plagiopus. The same result was also obtained from the analyses of rbcL and morphological data. Catoscopium is excluded from the family.
