Distinctive characters for Anomodon rugelii include the rusty brownish color, feltlike primary branches due to the abundance of rhizoids, more slender branches with strongly incurved leaves when dry, redness of the costa, and above all, conspicuous auricles at the leaf base. The auricles have long-branched papillae on the margins. Apiculate leaves are not a reliable character, as there are many plants the leaves of which are obtuse to rounded and lack an apiculus. Anomodon rugelii usually has foliose pseudoparaphyllia, although they can sometimes be completely 1-seriate. Fruiting mats are infrequent, but when found, sporophytes are produced in abundance. The perigonial leaves have crenulate distal margins and laminal cells with few to no papillae. The branch leaf costae are sometimes slightly flexuose.
