By comparison, Cox et al. (2000) reported a phylogeny from rbcL, rps4, trnL and 18S rRNA sequences which placed the acrocarpous genus Orthodontium as the sister group to the Hypnidae, although they used a small sample of Rhizogoniaceae, hypnodendroid pleurocarps and Hypnidae.

We allowed, within a single family, sporophytic evolution in which fully developed hypnoid peristomes can become greatly reduced. We correlated these reduction sequences with differences in habitat. , Buck, 1980, p. 77), the implications of this fact on the classification of pleurocarpous mosses have been neglected.
