Plagiochila asplenioides: Worley indicates this species is found throughout the region. PacNW herbarium database currently treats this as a synonym of Plagiochila porelloides (October 2022).

FNA note: Plagiochila asplenioides and P. porelloides were confused until recently, and almost all records of P. asplenioides may be P. porelloides. The range of P. asplenioides is currently uncertain and needs to be checked carefully. [1]
