Fens and fen-like shores, especially of the Great Lakes, in calcareous sites, in sun or partial shade and often associated with mossy hummocks and Thuja occidentalis.
This is superficially similar in habit to a small Lycopodiella inundata (which, however, occurs in acidic habitats) in its creeping vegetative stems with erect fertile branches with a slightly expanded apical strobilus. Unlike the other two species of Selaginella, this one is often hidden among mosses and denser vegetation (sedges or other fen plants).
