Notes:

Ecology: Upper montane forest, extending into the shrubby páramo and puna; full or partially shaded, on soil, humus and leaf litter. Elevation: 2100-5000 m (Venezuela: 2900-4070 m, Colombia: 2800-4170 m, Ecuador: 2900-4000 m, Peru: 2100-4267 m, Bolivia: 2400-4120 m).

Although most species of Bartramia are found in the open montane and puna, B. angustifolia is a commom element of the upper montane forest. Synonyms include Bartramia defoliata Müll. Hal., B. mollis Herzog, B. secunda Schimp. ex Müll. Hal. and B squarrosa Herzog.
