Anomobryum proligerum Broth. & Herz., Hedwigia 65: 159. 1925.


Plants are similar to Anomobryum julaceum, but differ by having numerous, up to hundreds of reddish brown gemmae clustered together in leaf axils of the infertile branches. The leaf primordia of the gemmae are not well developed in this species. When the gemmae are not present, the two species are very difficult to separate.
