A rare high-arctic species, Arctoa anderssonii was once considered a variety of A. fulvella, but is distinguished by a short seta, large perichaetial leaves, and straight, immersed capsule. It has a costa that is more shortly excurrent than that of A. fulvella but longer than that of A. hyperborea.
