general taxon notes:

Microcampylopus contains three species with a pantropical montane distribution; only the above species is known for the Neotropics. The genus is distinguished by small habit (plants to 10 mm high), a rather long subulate leaves from a concave, sheathing obovate base, undifferentiated alar cells, short, curved seta (to 3 mm), slightly emergent capsules, vertically striate peristome that is divided to 2/3, and absence of ciliate hairs at the base of the calyptra.


Microcampylopus contiene tres especies con distribución en las montañas pantropicales. En Bolivia y el Neotrópico se registra sólo una especie, Microcampylopus curvisetus (Hampe) Giese & J.-P. Frahm. En general Microcampylopus curvisetus es muy rara en los Andes tropicales. Este género se distingue por su hábito pequeño (plantas de hasta 10 mm de alto), hojas bastante largo-subuladas desde una base cóncava, envainadora obovada, células alares indiferenciadas, setas curvadas (a 3 mm), cortas, cápsulas escasamente emergentes, verticalmente estriadas peristoma dividido hasta 2/3 y sin pelos en la base de la caliptra. Esta especie fue descubierta recientemente en Bolivia.
