Bryum capillare, in its typical form, is characterized by the leaves twisted about the stem when dry, oblong to oblong leaves (ca. 1-4 mm long), recurved and border (by 3-5 linear rows of cells), rather long excurrent costa, rhomboidal upper cells, oblong to short rectangular basal cells. Bryum atenense is similar if not identical to B. capillare (or ‘Capillare group’); see comments under that species. Bryum longedecurrens Broth., B. microcomosum Müll. Hal. and B. stephanii Herzog are synonyms; all were collected in the department of Cochabamba, the first and third were both collected by Herzog from Tocorani and Incacorral respectively, the second species was collected by Germain in 1889 from Choquecamata.
