Plagiochila microdictyon Mitt., previously considered a synonym of P. circinalis (Lehm. & Lindenb.) Lindenb., is a distinct species, with a limited distribution in northern New Zealand. This species has the coarse, nodular leaf cell trigones of P. circinalis, but has straight, non-coiled androecia, the male bracts toothed at the apex and united with the bract above. In dorsal aspect, the opposing leaf bases are separated by a conspicuous groove, leaving the surface of the stem narrowly exposed.
