Braunia Bruch & W. P. Schimper, 1846.

The occurrence of Braunia secunda in Arizona and in Baja California suggests the possibility of its occurrence in California. Like other members of the Hedwigiaceae, Braunia has papillose cells and deeply concave, ecostate leaves. Unlike Hedwigia and Pseudobraunia it lacks a hyaline awn and has some plications at the leaf base.
