According to the trnLUAA intron and trnLUAA 3' exon - trnFGAA intergenic spacer sequences, Dicranella palustris (Dicks.) Crundw. ex Warb. is closely related to Dichodontium pellucidum (Hedw.) Schimp. and separated from other Dicranella species. Therefore, Dicranella palustris is included in Dichodontium under the new name Dichodontium palustre (Dicks.) Stech comb. nov.
