ABSTRACT. Molecular phylogenetic analysis supported an isolated position of Neckera polyclada within the “Pinnatella–clade” of the family Neckeraceae, thus it is segregated in a new monospecific genus Enrothia. The closest of relatives of Enrothia the obtained reconstructions, Neckera warburgii, N. himalayana, and Curvicladum kurzii never form a supported clade with it, and morphologically are very distinct as well.
