Notes     (Last Modified On 5/4/2009)
general taxon notes:
We do not agree with Ochi (1985) that this species is a synonym of Bryum capillare. This species differs from Bryum capillare by having more robust plants, much more densely arranged leaves on stems, distinctly smaller leaf cells, and weakly differentiated leaf margins.
