Discussion: This genus, a member of the Dicranella-complex, differs from Campylopodium and Dicranella by a single sporophytic feature. Microcampylopus has cygenous setae and lacks stomata. Campylopodium has similar setae but has stomata, while Dicranella has straight to flexuous setae and lacks stomata. Microcampylopus has been considered distinct in having warty spores, but this condition is found in Dicranella.
