Type Information: Basionym: Microsphaera extensa var. curta U. Braun. Type: Microsphaera extensa var. curta U. Braun.

Taxonomic Literature: Taxonomic notes: This variety differs from var. extensa by ascomata characters, see below. Braun U., Beih. Nova Hedwigia 89: 1-700 [358-359] (1987).

Biogeography: Continent: Northern America (USA, Canada). Country or state(s): Illinois (USA) and Alabama (USA).
