Rhytidiadelphus squarrosus is reported to be widespread in the South Island of New Zealand and the western region of Tasmania. The habitat is in areas of human activity which supports its status as an adventive species, probably as a result of anthropogenic action. Although both female and male plants have been detected in some populations, there is no evidence of sporophytes and spread is through asexual fragmentation.
