Brachymenium systylium is distinguished by the often densely tomentose plants with leaves ± spirally twisted, oblong to ovate-oblong leaves often ending in a capillary tip, indistinct border of 1-2 cell rows, percurrent to short or long excurrent costa, ± thick-walled, rhomboidal upper cells, quadrate or oblate-rectangular basal cells, erect capsules, fragile, hyaline slender exostome teeth, endostome consisting of a basal membrane, opercula short-conic. Brachymenium flexipilum Herzog, collected from Florida de San Mateo (Department of Santa Cruz) by Herzog during his second collecting trip to Bolivia, is a synonym.
 
Brachymenium systylium se distingue por las plantas a menudo densamente tomentosas con hojas ± torcidas en espiral, hojas oblongas a ovado-oblongas a menudo terminando en un ápice capilar, borde indistinto de 1-2 filas de células, costa percurrente a corto- o largo-excurrente, con paredes ± gruesas, células superiores rómbicas, células basales cuadradas u oblato-rectangulares, cápsulas erectas, dientes del exostoma hialinos delgados, frágiles, endostoma consiste de una membrana basal, opérculo corto-cónico. Brachymenium flexipilum Herzog, colectado en Florida de San Mateo (departamento de Santa Cruz) por Herzog durante su segundo viaje de colecta a Bolivia, es un sinónimo.
