Taxonomic remark Originally allocated to fam. Rhyniaceae, but considered distinct from that group by later authors. Subsequently identified as the sporophyte of the earlier described Lyonophyton W. Remy & R. Remy, 1980; the two names can co-exist as separate form-genera, although Novikoff & Barabasz-Krasny, 2015 treat Aglaophyton as a synonym of Lyonophyton, and place the latter in its own family Lyonophytaceae Doweld. [details]
