Abstract
According to new rps4 and trnL-trnF sequences, Goniomitrium should be removed from the Pottiaceae and placed again in the Funariaceae. Goniomitrium and Pyramidula form a sister clade to the rest of the Funariaceae, and are accommodated in their own subfamily, the Pyramiduloideae subfam. nov. Clavitheca nom. nov. is proposed to replace the illegitimate Corynotheca Ochyra. The exclusion of the Ephemeraceae from the Funariales is here corroborated.
