Hemitrichia clavata, Hemitrichia calyculata and Trichia decipiens are very hard to tell apart without microscopy. One way they are different ounce they are mature is that T. decipiens usually has a more yellow slightly thicker stem than H. calyculata and H. clavata, which is filled with spores. H. clavata’s head looks more like a club shape but usually has a more narrow darker stem as does H. calyculata. T. decipiens and H. calyculata both have more tear shaped heads.
