Even though it has been generally accepted that the generic name Felipponea Broth. (Bryophyta, Leucodontaceae) was validly published in 1912, this appears not to be the case, due to the lack of a generic description. The subsequent description of this genus in 1925 by Brotherus in the second edition of the Musci in Die Natürlichen Pflanzenfamilien created a superfluous name because in the meanwhile the genus Pterogoniadelphus M. Fleisch. was established in 1917 to accommodate the same species, Cladomnion montevidense Müll. Hal., and this generic name has priority. Three new combinations, P. assimilis (Müll. Hal.) Ochyra & Zijlstra, P. esquirolii (Thér.) Ochyra & Zijlstra and P. hollermayeri (Thér.) Ochyra & Zijlstra, are proposed.
