Southeastern Alaska Distribution: Probably throughout, though somewhat local and scarce.
Habitat: Probably a calciphyte in southeastern Alaska. Usually on the faces of humid cliffs or canyon walls. A single strand was located in other bryophytes in a muskeg in Kruzof Island. In British Columbia the species has also been reported from among grasses of more open sites from sea level to the subalpine (Schofield 1968b).
Comments: Sporophytes and gemmae have not been seen in western North American material.
