Steerecleus H. Robinson, 1987.



Steerecleus represents yet another recent generic segregate designed to bring unifying similarities to the species remaining in Eurhynchium and Rhynchostegium. The long rostrate operculum on this plant has justified its placement in the latter genus. It is discordant within that genus because of the lack of significant shortening of the distal cells of the leaf. The somewhat complanate leaf arrangement stands out among the plants of the Eurhynchium complex, as does the lack of significant alar differentiation.
