Argyrochosma fendleri is occasionally confused with A. limitanea, which can have slightly flexuous rachises and pinna costae. All A. limitanea specimens with slightly flexuous rachises and costae have 32 spores per sporangium, whereas specimens of A. fendleri consistently have 64. This southern Rocky Mountain species is the only member of the genus that is found on acidic substrates such as granite.
