Anoectangium stracheyanum is distinguished by the crowded leaves (hiding the stem), 1.5-2 mm, constricted just above the leaf base, and excurrent costa as a stout mucro of several cells; A. aestivum differs by the leaves somewhat distant and exposing the stem, leaf base not constricted, and costa percurrent in distal leaves, leaf apex as a single, sharp cell. Müller described Zygodon linearis in 1879 and Zygodon mandonianus Schimp. ex Müll. Hal. in 1897, both names are synonyms of Anoectangium aestivum (Cano y Jiménez, 2013). All Bolivian collections of Anoectangium aestivum should be re-examined.
Anoectangium stracheyanum se distingue por tener las hojas agregadas (escondiendo el tallo), 1.5-2.0 mm, constrictas justo encima de la base de la hoja, y costa excurrente como un mucrón robusto formado por varias células; A. aestivum se diferencia por tener las hojas algo distantes y exponiendo al tallo, base de la hoja no constricta, y costa percurrente en las hojas distales, ápices de las hojas formados por sólo una célula afilada. . Müller describió a Zygodon linearis en 1879 y Zygodon mandonianus Schimp. ex Müll. Hal. en 1897, ambos nombres son sinónimos de Anoectangium aestivum (Cano y Jiménez, 2013). Todas las colecciones bolivianas de Anoectangium aestivum deben ser re examinadas.
