The types of sixteen taxa of Amblystegiaceae were studied. Most of these taxa are considered synonyms of other well-known species. Several taxa are lectotypified, most notably Thuidium decipiens De Not. (Palustriella decipiens (De Not.) Ochyra) and Hypnum falcatum Brid. (Palustriella falcata (Brid.) Hedenäs). The latter seems to be the only representative of the genus in North America: all studied specimens labelled P. decipiens or P. commutata (Hedw.) Ochyra belong to other taxa, except for one specimen of P. commutata, whose geographical origin is unclear.
