Identification
Frullania rostrata is a polymorphic species, especially in the size of the plant, form of the lobuli, underleaves and styli, as well as cell anatomy. For example, shoot size ranges from less than 400 Ám wide to more than 1mm wide, form of the underleaf varies from those with entire lateral margins to those with small teeth or angulations, and lobe apices vary from rounded to appendiculate. In fact, with respect to herbarium material, some forms of F. rostrata with acute to appendiculate leaf apices have been mistaken for F. apiculata; von Konrat & Braggins (2001) provided a key to help distinguish between these two species.

Geographic distribution
Found throughout Australasia including, New Zealand where it occurs on all the major islands, i.e., North Island, South Island, and Stewart Island; Australia and Tasmania.
