Bolivian collections can be referred to as B. mathewsii subsp. mathewsii. Three synonyms originally described from Bolivia include: Bartramia brotheri Herzog, B. perpusilla Müll. Hal. and B. pruinata Herzog. This taxon can be recognized as B. mathewsii subsp. mathewsii; see B. mathewsii subsp. synoica entered separately.
