Anomodon thraustus resembles A. minor but can be distinguished by the more delicate habit, thinner branches, differentiated central strand of smaller cells, and incurved or crisped leaves that become widely spreading when moist rather than complanate. The stems are sometimes irregularly pinnate. Leaves of A. thraustus are narrow with broken apices, similar to those of A. tristis, and the costa is obscured by laminal cells distally. The delicate, narrowly ligulate distal leaf of A. thraustus is distinct; that of A. minor is wider and shorter. Anomodon thraustus has been considered an East Asian species, but isolated records from central Mexico exist (L. J. Gier 1980). All North American (and most Mexican) specimens of this taxon have been misidentified as A. minor (and could also be mistaken for A. tristis). Although it is a rare species, the presence of A. thraustus in the New World has been overlooked. The disjunct distribution of A. thraustus parallels that of A. minor, although in the New World A. thraustus is somewhat more southerly in range.
