Hypnum dieckei is distributed around the north Pacific and can be frequent on logs or outcrops near streams. The plants are distinctive especially in summer when sporophytes are produced, because H. dieckei is the only North American species with nodding capsules. The dark stems and pinnate branching associated with excavate alar regions of thin-walled cells set off by inner thick-walled and pigmented basal cells are also usually enough to distinguish H. dieckei. Plants of H. dieckei have branches 0.5–1.5 mm wide. They are often firmly attached by rhizoids, but the rhizoids are usually absent from suberect plants; the alar cells are 40–65 × 20–30 µm and often bulging, with the outer cells somewhat collapsed inward; the supra-alar cells are few and triangular; and the basal laminal cells are rectangular.
