Species 3 (1 in the flora).
Campyliadelphus grows on wet or periodically moist calcareous substrates. Campyliadelphus species are similar to Drepanocladus arcticus, D. cardotii, D. polygamus, and species of Campylium and Campylophyllum, in that their leaves are at least partly recurved or squarrose, and the leaf acumen is furrowed. The species of Drepanocladus mentioned above and those of Campylium consist of plants that are mostly larger than those of Campyliadelphus, have only foliose pseudoparaphyllia, and exostome borders more strongly widened where the pattern changes from cross striolate to papillose. In addition, D. arcticus, D. cardotii, and the members of Campylium almost always have a short double costa.
