Mamontov, Y.S., A.A. Vilnet & A. Schäfer-Verwimp. 2021. On the taxonomy of the subfamilies Pallavicinioideae and Podomitrioideae of the family Pallaviciniaceae (Marchantiophyta)

Integrative study of species of the genus Podomitrium confirmed the monophyly of the genus and its close phylogenetic affinity to the genus Pallavicinia. As a result, the subfamily Podomitrioideae is proposed to be a synonym of subfamily Pallavicinioideae. A high level of molecular divergence between the specimens of Podomitrium malaccense suggests its complicated infraspecific structure. Pallavicinia xiphoides is raised to the rank of a separate genus, while the section Subciliatae is raised to the subgenus rank.
