Fertile specimens of Syrrhopodon incompletus are known in the flora area only from Florida. This is a weedy moss of low humid forests. It is the only one of its genus in the flora area that lacks hyaline cells on the leaf margins. Syrrhopodon incompletus is represented in the flora area by the var. incompletus. H. A. Crum and L. E. Anderson (1981) noted that attribution of this moss to New York is probably incorrect. According to its label, a specimen (DUKE) was collected in 1935 at Amityville, on Long Island, by M. L. Wickes. The specimen consists of three plants, two of them with sporophytes. It is very unlikely that this southern moss would occur in New York, let alone produce sporophytes there.
