Aulacomniaceae is a family of mosses.[1]

Description

Bell et. al. (2007) describes members of the family:

  • "Morphological traits shared by these taxa include sulcate capsules, deciduous apical leaves, undulate, oblong-ovate and asymmetrical leaves with coarsely-toothed margins, and smooth leaf cells."[2]

Classification

The placement of the family has been subject to much revision. The family was first described by Wilhelm Philippe Schimper in his 1860 publication Synopsis Muscorum Europaeorum.[3] Bell et. al. (2007) elevated the family to the order Aulacomniales.[2] However, the Goffinet et al. (2009) classification places the family within the Rhizogoniales.[1]

The genera represented by the order are:
