Thuidium glaucinoides is reported for the first time in the State of Pahang during The Scientific Expedition for Forest Biodiversity of Endau Rompin State Park by a group of researchers from National University of Malaysia (UKM). These mosses are recorded as the only species of Thuidiaceae family found during the expedition.
The microhabitats for this species are buttress, exposed roots, trunks, and branches. It also can be found on twigs, rotten barks, soil and stone surfaces. Although the mosses have not been proven to be economically valuable, they are nevertheless ecologically important in storing the moisture and water in the forest. During the dry season, the bryophytes and the lichens will eventually release the stored water slowly to the ecosystem to maintain the forest humidity.
