10. Bruchia drummondii Hampe ex E. Britton, Bull. Torrey Bot. Club. 21: 361. 1894.

Distal leaves long-subulate beyond an ovate, obovate, or broadly elliptic base, 1-3.2 mm, leaf base strongly differentiated in shape; distal laminal cells long-rectangular. Sexual condition autoicous. Seta 0.2-0.7 mm. Capsule neck short, broadly obovate to truncate. Spores reticulate. Calyptra smooth.

Capsules mature spring. Sandy soil; usually low elevations; Ala., Fla., Ga., La., Miss., N.C., S.C., Tex., Va.

The capsule of Bruchia drummondii is immersed in the perichaetial leaves or emergent, but not hidden by the leaf tips. This species is easily identified by the long-subulate leaves, relatively squat capsule, and reticulate spores.
