A relatively common grammitid, Cochldium serrulatum forms small colonies via root proliferations. The leaf dimorphism is diagnostic. Cochlidium serrulatum is occasionally mistaken for Stenogrammitis, but that genus differs by a number of characters including minute branched hairs where one branch is acicular.
