Andreaeobryum macrosporum is rare or occasional within its range, though locally abundant. Didymodon subandreaeoides (Pottiaceae), also of limestone substrates and found in the same areas, likewise has dimorphic leaves that are cochleariform on fragile branchlets or portions of some stems; it has a stem central strand. Both that species and the similar D. nigrescens have 1-stratose leaves.
