Fissidens dissitifolius is usually found encrusted with lime; the species is distinguished by the lanceolate to oblong-lanceolate leaves, acute to obtuse apex often ending in a unicellular apiculus, entire to distally crenulate-serrulate margins, bordered throughout (ending a few cells below the apex), vaginant laminae 1/2-2/3 the leaf length, costa ending well below the apex (to 15 cells) or percurrent, and smooth, rarely bulging laminal cells (often notably shrunken or clapsed when dry).
