Didymodon laevigatus is characterized by the absence of a stem hyalodermis, ovate-narrowly lanceolate to ovate-subulate leaves to ca. 3 mm, acute apex, recurved margins usually bistratose, percurrent to more typically short excurrent costa, 2 stereid bands, long rectangular upper adaxial costal (epidermal) cells, lamina cells thick-walled, smooth, quadrate-rounded to transversely oblong upper cells, and rectangular basal cells. Reports of Barbula fusca Müll. Hal. by Williams (1913) and Herzog (1916) are D. laevigatus fide Jiménez and Cano (2008. Bryologist 109: 392-397).
