Daltonia jamesonii is distinguished by the ovate to ovate-ligulate leaves to 2 mm long, revolute leaf margins, border distinct but narrow with 3-5 cell rows at leaf base, subpercurrent to percurrent costa, distally roughened seta to 12 mm long. The variety laevis described by Herzog (1916: 128) distinguished by an almost smooth seta, was based on a collection made from Cerros de Malaga, department of Cochabamba. This is considered here a mere form of the species.
