Globulinella is distinguished by the appressed, concave, obovate to spathulate leaves, broadly acute, often cucullate apex, bulging ventral costa, thick-walled distal laminal cells and well exserted, peristomate sporophytes. Globulinella peruviana (R.S. Williams) Steere is now placed in Saitoella. Two species largely confined to the Neotropics; Globulinella benoistii (Thér.) Magill is only known from Ecuador and G. globifera (Hampe) Steere is distributed from southwestern United States to Central America and Ecuador.
