Comments
Brachythecium digastrum was placed in synonymy by Ignatov, et als. in a paper in Arctoa in 2008 based on comparison of molecular data (nr ITS) from a West Virginia specimen fitting this description. Crum and Anderson recognize B. digastrum based on enlarged basal cells extending inward to the costa and merely acute leaves with very short cells in the acumen. FNA follows Ignatov, et als. (2008).
