Abstract

Morphological features of three species of Brotherella Loeske ex M. Fleisch. based on their type specimens are found to be inconsistent with their current taxonomic placements. Brotherella dixonii Herzog and Brotherella pallida (Renauld & Cardot) M. Fleisch. are transferred to Ectropothecium and Wijkia as E. dixonii (Herzog) Y. Jia & S. He comb. nov. and W. pallida (Renauld & Cardot) Y. Jia & S. He comb. nov., respectively. Brotherella harveyana (Mitt.) Dixon is synonymized with Pylaisiadelpha tenuirostris (Bruch & Schimp.) W. R. Buck.
