Notes:

Ecology: Open montane to páramo and humid puna; exposed habitats, often wet sites, on soil and rocks. Elevation: 1550-4200 m (Venezuela: 2900-3300 m, Colombia: 3550-4200 m, Ecuador: 1380-2400 m, Peru: 1700-3000 m, Bolivia: 3550 m). Distribution: Rather widespread in the Northern Hemisphere, less so in the Paleotropics and Australasia.
 
Ecología: Montano abierto a páramo y puna; en sitios expuestos, sobre suelo y rocas. Elevación: 1550-3700 m (Venezuela: 2900-3300 m, Colombia: 3550-3700 m, Ecuador: 2400 m, Perú: 2050-3000 m, Bolivia: 1550-3550 m). Distribución: Algo ampliamente distribuida en el Hemisferio Norte, menos frecuente en el Paleotrópico y Australasia.
 
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. This entire assemblage requires further studies.
 
Bryum alpinum se caracteriza por las plantas de color rojizo-matizado o pardo-dorado, hojas imbricadas oblongas a oblong-lanceladas hasta ca. 2.5 mm, ápices agudos, márgenes sin borde y enteros o subenteros, costa fuerte a menudo roja y células con paredes gruesas o por lo menos firmes. Varias especie están relacionadas con B. alpinum deacauerdo a Ochi (1980) incluyendo a B. microchaeton y B. paradoxum, y posiblemente B micronitidum. Este agrupación completa require mayores estudios.
