The marginal teeth in the hyaline leaf apices of Hedwigia stellata display the same characters as the apical cell: generally sharply pointed and narrow, with an occasional papilla; in H. ciliata the teeth are broader and often irregularly covered with scattered papillae, especially on their tips. Hedwigia stellata is common in California only in the San Francisco and Los Angeles areas (W. R. Buck and D. H. Norris 1996). The chlorophyllose, generally yellow-brown boundary between the body of the leaf and the hyaline apex is often irregular with short longitudinal lines of pigmented and non-pigmented cells juxtaposed, resulting in a jagged transverse line. In many leaves, the ultimate laminal cells are somewhat darker in coloration just at this boundary. This is true also in specimens of H. detonsa.
