Catalog Notes: Although habitat occurs for this moss in California, published reports for this moss in northern California are based on mis-identified material. We were unable to locate and confirm a Californian collection of this taxon. This species is documented for Oregon (Christy and Wagner 1999). Tomentypnum nitens should be searched for in meadow-fen areas with marble-limestone bedrock in the Klamath Mountains. A recent population was obtained by Jessup a few miles north of the state line. Not yet found in CA but known from OR.
