Anomobryum prostratum is characterized by the ovate, weakly plicate or wrinkled leaves, rounded apex, firm- to thick-walled laminal cells. Allen (2002) placed A. plicatum Cardot in synonymy, noting that plant stature, leaf plication, and cell size and thickness were variable features found between populations and even within a single plant.
 
Anomobryum prostratum se caracteriza por presentar hojas ovadas, débilmente plegadas o arrugadas, ápices redondeados, células de la lámina con paredes firmes a gruesas. Allen (2002) localizó a A. plicatum Cardot en sinonimia, tomando en cuenta que la estatura de la planta, pliegues de las hojas, y el tamaño y grosor de las células son características variables que se encuentran entre las poblaciones e incluso dentro una misma planta.
