The following corrections correspond to our recently published review article [1].

Figure 1, the note of true stomata should be placed to the left of the branchpoint for mosses and hornworts, as both groups possess stomata.

Figure 2, Fig 2C is Orthotrichum anomalum. Full citations for images used in this figure are:
