Amblystegium varium is distinguished by leaves 0.6-2 mm long, a percurrent costa, ending the leaf acumen. This species is similar to A. serpens with a narrow costa (mostly 50 µm wide at the leaf base), however A. serpens typically has a shorter costa, ending well below the leaf acumen, ca. 2/3 the length of the leaf.
Amblystegium varium se distingue por tener hojas de 0.6-2 mm de largo, costa percurrente, terminando en el acumen de la hoja. Esta especie es similar a A. serpens con una costa angosta (generalmente 50 µm de ancho en la base de la hoja), sin embargo, A. serpens típicamente presenta una costa corta, terminando muy debajo del acumen de la hoja, ocupando aproximadamente 2/3 de la longitud de la hoja.
