Fissidens crispus is characterized by the frequently red stems, oblong acute to obtuse-acuminate leaves, entire to distally denticulate-serrulate margins, bordered throughout, percurrent, rarely short excurrent costa, vaginant laminae 1/2-3/4 the leaf length, dorsal laminae ending above insertion or long decurrent – extending on to the stem, firm-walled, smooth or bulging laminal cells. A species exhibiting a notable broad ecological amplatude from lowland humid forests to semi-humid and humid puna. This species was long known under the name of F. repandus Wilson ex Mitt. Further synonyms include Fissidens fendleri Müll. Hal., F. oligophyllus Müll. Hal. and F. pauper Herzog.
Fissidens crispus se caracteriza por los tallos frecuentemente rojos, hojas oblongas agudas a obtuso-acuminadas, márgenes enteros a distalmente denticulado-serrulados, completamente bordeados, costa percurrente, rara vez corto excurrente, lámina vaginante 1/2-3/4 del largo de la hoja, lámina dorsal terminando encima de la inserción o largo decurrente – extendiéndose en el tallo, células de la lámina con paredes firmes, lisas o abultadas. Esta especie tiene una gran amplitud ecológica desde bosques de tierras bajas húmedas a puna semi-húmeda y húmeda. La especie fue conocida con el nombre de F. repandus Wilson ex Mitt.
