Notes     (Last Modified On 5/4/2009)
general taxon notes:
This species is similar to Pyrrhobryum dozyanum, but differs in having smaller plants with rhizoids only at the base of stems, serrate perichaetial leaves, and the basal locations of the sporophytes. In contrast, Pyrrhobryum dozyanum are much larger (plants usually 5–10 cm high), has dense rhizoids throughout the stems, nearly entire perichaetial leaves, and the middle locations of the sporophytes.
