The glabrous Cheilanthes wrightii is occasionally confused with C. alabamensis and certain species of Pellaea. Cheilanthes wrightii is easily separated from C. alabamensis by its glabrous rachis, which is grooved on the adaxial surface. It is distinguished from all local members of Pellaea by having both a grooved rachis and a thin, long-creeping stem.
