Bryonoguchia brevifolia S. Y. Zeng reported from China is examined and is considered conspecific with Hylocomiastrum himalayanum (Mitt.) Broth., a species widespread in the Himalayas, China, Taiwan, and Japan. Hylocomiastrum is distinguished from Bryonoguchia by its sympodial growth-form and reindeer-horn paraphyllia. In contrast, Bryonoguchia is characterized by having filiform paraphyllia and uni-papillose leaf cells. Byonoguchia is now a monotypic genus of the Thuidiaceae.
