Abstract

Pylaisiopsis (Broth.) Broth. is revised based on the molecular phylogenetic analysis and detailed morphological investigation. The genus is considered to be synonymous with Pylaisia (Hypnaceae). An older combination, Pylaisia speciosa (Mitt.) Wilson ex A. Jaeger, is selected for Pylaisiopsis speciosa (Mitt.) Broth. A description and illustrations of the species are provided. The taxonomic position of Foreauella orthothecia (Schwägr.) Dixon & P. de la Varde is also discussed.
