3. Bruchia hallii Austin, Bull. Torrey Bot. Club. 5: 21. 1874.

Distal leaves ovate to very short-lanceolate, 0.7-1.3 mm, leaf base not differentiated in shape; distal laminal cells short-rectangular. Sexual condition paroicous. Seta 0.4-1.7 mm. Capsule neck short, obovate. Spores densely spinose. Calyptra smooth

The short leaves and short seta are good field characters for Bruchia hallii, but the spores must be examined to distinguish it from B. fusca.
