Campylopus capitulatus is most similar to and likely to be confused with C. fragilis; both species produce brood leaves in the terminal comal leaves, upper laminal cells subquadrate and basal cells thin-walled, and alar cells absent or weakly developed, however in the former species the leaves are tightly appressed to the stem, in the latter species the leaves are spreading.
 
Campylopus capitulatuses muy similar puede ser confundida con C. fragilis; ambas especies producen hojas propagulíferas en las hojas comosas terminales, células superioresde la lámina subcuadradas y células basales con paredes delgadas, y sin células alares o débilmente desarrolladas, sin embargo en la primera especie las hojas son fuertemente adpresasal tallo, en la última especie las hojas son patentes.
