Bartramia stricta is a widespread Old World species occurring infrequently in the southwestern portion of the flora area, with an isolated occurrence in western Canada. The strict, appressed leaves without shoulders and with relatively uniform areolation from base to acumen aid in recognition. When fertile, the erect, symmetric capsules and single but well-developed peristome are diagnostic. Confusion between this species and Anacolia laevisphaera may occur, especially with sterile material. In the latter, the apices of the distal leaves are often divergent when dry, spreading recurved when moist, with the inner basal laminal cells more differentiated than those of the basal angles compared with basal areolation in B. stricta.
