Fissidens asplenioides is characterized by the rather large plants, leaves distally incurved when dry, mostly to 3 mm long, unbordered, crenulate leaf margins, and smooth, bulging laminal cells above, marginal cells at base often rectangular but not forming a distinct border. Synonyms include Fissidens amboroicus Herzog, F. genunervis Müll. Hal., F. obtusissimus Müll. Hal. ex Broth., F. revolvens Schimp. in Müll. Hal., F. turbinatus Taylor.
