Pelliaceae is a family of liverworts with three genera: Pellia (in the temperate Northern Hemisphere) and Noteroclada (in the Southern Hemisphere), and Androcryphia. The three genera are easily distinguished, not only because they occur in completely separate regions of the world, but because Noteroclada has a leafy appearance, while Pellia is more clearly thallose. Androcryphia is much less common, and bears similarities to the foliose members of Jungermanniales.Wikimedia Commons has media related to Pelliaceae.
