Bryum coronatum is best distinguished by the dark red capsules and enlarged and wrinkled neck (broader than the urn); other features include the ovate- or oblong-lanceolate leaves (1.5-3 mm long) with a long excurrent costa, absent border, firm to thin-walled laminal cells, basal cells mostly short rectangular. Bryum dichotomum is similar, but differs in the usually shorter leaves (to 1.5 mm), short excurrent costa, basal cells quadrate or subquadrate, and the capsule neck slightly inflated but not wrinkled when dry. Bryum gracilifolium Müll. Hal. is a synonym.
Bryum coronatum se distingue por las cápsulas rojas oscuras y el cuello agrandado y arrugado (más ancho que la urna); otras características incluyen las hojas ovado- u oblongo-lanceoladas (1.5-3 mm de largo) con una costa largo excurrente, sin borde, células de la lámina con paredes firmes a delgadas, células basales generalmente corto rectangulares. Bryum dichotomum es similar, pero se diferencia por las hojas que generalmente son cortas (hasta 1.5 mm), costa corto excurrente, células basales cuadradas o subcuadrada y el cuello de la cápsula escasamente inflado pero no arrugado en seco.
