List of moss species I know I might get mixed up

Bryum Lanatum / Argenteum
Dendroalsia californica and Bestia longipipes
Atrichum and Plagiomnium undulatum
Polytrichaceae and certain Dicranaceae
Leucobryum and Aulocomnium
Probably only rarely get these mixed up
Pleurozium schreberi and Hylocomium splendens
Especially if plants are not shown in natural habitat. The stairstep shoots confirm it's Hylocomnium.
Grimmia and Pterygonum ovatum
Probably only if dry and without a closeup shot
Kindbergia oregana and Kindbergia praelonga
Apparently K. praelonga can sometimes be regularly pinnate like K. oregana
Polytrichum juniperinum and Polytrichum strictum
Didymodon and Ceratodon purperus
Sphagnum and Leucobryum
Leucobryum was dry and on its side.
Thuidium and Trichocolea

List of moss species that have lots of observations incorrectly labeled

Syntrichia ruralis
I've seen other Pottiaceae species, Polytrichum, and Sphagnum labeled as this. I expect a lot of other Syntrichia species get labeled as this as well.
Entodon seductrix
Not sure why this species in particular seems to be a default option for pleurocarpous mosses, but it is.
Sphagnum squarrosum
I'm pretty sure any sphagnum ID'd to species has a decent chance of being wrong, but this is the only one that I notice it with because I can actually ID it myself. Because its one of the few easy to ID sphagnum species it's a frequent AI suggestion which is probably why it is overused.
Ceratodon purpureus
Lots of obs with blurry photos of mosses with lots of sporophytes and small gametophytes get labeled as this. It's hard to verify if they actually are this species or not, though, so I usually just leave them alone. Would only trust research grad obs with high quality photos.
Bryum argenteum
A lot of Bryums that don't look very white at all get assigned this, including a lot of my own obs that I should really get around to fixing.
