Brachymenium fabronioides is of similar stature and terrestrial preference as B. acuminatum and B. exile; see notes under B. acuminatum.Brachymenium fabronioides is of similar stature and terrestrial preference as B. acuminatum and B. exile; see notes under B. acuminatum. The leaves of B. fabronioides are tightly imbricate, to ca. 1 mm, lanceolate to somewhat triangular with an acuminate apex, upper cells thin-walled and sublinear, and alar region distinct with quadrate to subquardate cells; innovation leaves smaller, ovate-acuminate, and costa excurrent. Bryum subsericeum Broth., based on two syntypes collected by Herzog, is a synonym. The type, Bryum fabronioides Müll. Hal., was collected in Juyuy, Argentina, by Lorentz in 1873.
 
Brachymenium fabronioides es similar en tamaño y su preferencia terrestre a B. acuminatum y B. exile; ver notas en B. acuminatum. Las hojas de B. fabronioides son firmemente imbricadas, hasta ca. 1 mm, lanceoladas a algo triangulares con ápices acuminados, células superiores con paredes delgadas y sublineares, y región alar conspicua con células cuadradas a subcuadradas; hojas de las innovaciones menores, ovado-acuminadas y con costa excurrente. Bryum subsericeum Broth., basada en dos sintipos colectados por Herzog, es un sinónimo. El tipo, Bryum fabronioides Müll. Hal., fue colectado en Juyuy, Argentina, por Lorentz en 1873.
