Notes:

Ecology: Open or shrubby montane to páramo and puna, generally in exposed habitats, rarely in shady sites; on soil and rocks. Elevation: 1540-5100 m (Venezuela: 3300-4765 m, Colombia: 2615-4250 m, Ecuador: 3630-4300 m, Peru: 2400-5000 m, Bolivia: 1540-5100 m). Distribution: United States (central and southern Rocky Mountains), Mexico, Central America, Venezuela to northern Argentina.
 
Bartramia potosica is distinguished by the plant stature mostly less than 4 cm, erect and appressed leaves 3.5-7 mm, non-swollen leaf tips but usually tips deciduous, fragile, mostly thin-walled shoulder cells, thin-walled linear leaf base cells, slightly curved setae to ca. 5.5 mm, capsules to ca. 3.5 mm, double peristome, finely papillose below, distally coarsely striate exostome, and shorter endostome. Probably the single most common Bartramia species of open highland sites, B. potosica is characterized by the deciduous leaf tips and delicate, hyaline leaf shoulder (the cells fragile and eroded). The type was collected by d’Orbigny in the 1830’s from Potosí. A rather amazing number of previously published species described from Bolivia are now considered synonyms: Bartramia auricola Müll. Hal. ex E. Britton, B. cacaltayae Herzog, B. defolians Herzog, B. fragilifolia Müll. Hal., B. glauca Herzog, B. inflata Herzog, B. thrausta Schimp. ex E. Britton, and B. wedellii Herzog (based on Bartramia glauca Herzog, non Lorentz). The name B. rusbyana was published by Müller (Nuovo Giorn. Bot. Ital. n.s. 4: 41. 1897) as a synonym of Bartramia thrausta. Two additional synonyms include Bartramia anacolioides Broth. and Bartramia peraristata Broth.
 
Bartramia potosica se distingue por las plantas generalmente menores a 4 cm, hojas erectas y adpresas de 3.5-7 mm, extremos de las hojas no engrosados pero generalmente con extremos deciduos, frágiles, células del hombro generalmente con paredes delgadas, células de la base de la hoja lineares con paredes delgadas, setas escasamente curvadas hasta ca. 5.5 mm, cápsulas hasta ca. 3.5 mm, peristoma doble, finamente papiloso en la porción basal, exostoma gruesamente estriado en la porción distal y endostoma corto. Probablemente es la especie más común de Bartramia de sitios abiertos en tierras altas, B. potosica se caracteriza por los extremos de las hojas deciduos y delicados, hombro de la hoja hialinoS (células frágiles y erosionadas). El tipo fue colectado por d’Orbigny en 1830 en Potosí. Un número impresionante de publicaciones antiguas que describen especies de Bolivia actualmente son consideradas sinónimos: Bartramia auricola Müll. Hal. Ex E. Britton, B. cacaltayae Herzog, B. defolians Herzog, B. fragilifolia Müll. Hal., B. glauca Herzog, B. inflata Herzog, B. thrausta Schimp. Ex E. Britton y B. wedellii Herzog (basada en Bartramia glauca Herzog, no Lorentz). El nombre B. rusbyana fue publicado por Müller (Nuovo Giorn. Bot. Ital. N.s. 4: 41. 1897) como un sinónimo de Bartramia thrausta.
