      The type collection is from “Abra de San Benito” (Department of Cochabamba), was made by Herzog on his first trip to Bolivia (1907-1908). The status of this species is unknown. Herzog compares this species to Dicranoweisia fastigiata (Mitt.) Paris described from Ecuador. Herzog’s description (1916: 165) includes the follow: Stems to 2 cm; leaves when dry incurved and subcrispate, when wet erect-patent with apices incurved, to 2 mm long, narrowly lanceolate, apices somewhat obtuse, margins plane or narrowly recurved, entire below, at apex subcrenulate, laminal cells subquadrate, walls subsinuose; sexual condition and sporophytes unknown. In the same volume Herzog described to other species of Dicranoweisia (D. fallax Herzog D. flexipes Herzog) that were later transferred to Camptodontium.
