The high sheathing oblong leaf base often gives the plants a slender, wiry appearance. In addition to the tightly sheathing leaf base, other features are the hyalodermis (flutted) and basal rectangular cells at the margin differentiated from the inner basal cells. Leptodontium anomalum Dixon & Thér., L. ferrugineum Broth. and L. vaginatum Herzog are synonyms.
La base de la hoja envainadora oblonga alta a menudo brinda a las plantas una apariencia delgada y alambrina. Leptodontium anomalum Dixon & Thér., L. ferrugineum Broth. y L. vaginatum Herzog son sinónimos.
