Bryum alpinum is characterized by the reddish- tinged or golden-brown coloration of the plants, imbricate leaves that are oblong to oblong-lancelate to ca. 2.5 mm, acute apex, unbordered and entire or subentire margins, strong costa often red in color, and thick or at least firm-walled cells. Several species are related to B. alpinum according to Ochi (1980) including B. microchaeton and B. paradoxum, and possibly B micronitidum.
