According to Mickel & Beitel (1988), “Phlegmariurus reflexus [as Lycopodium reflexum Lam.] is common on moist banks in Oaxaca and distinct by its erect, dichotomously forking stems with spreading leaves and conspicuous sporangia.”

The species is widely distributed in the Americas, occurring from Mexico and the West Indies to Paraguay and Brazil.
