Pohlia nutans is distinguished by the equally foliate stems, rarely comose, ovate-lanceolate leaves ca. 1-2.5 mm, serrulate leaf apices, recurved margins, strong, percurrent (rarely short excurrent) costa, thick-walled, rectangular laminal cells, paroicous sexual condition, longer perichaetial than stem leaves, rather short, inclined, cylindrical-pyriforme capsules (1-3 mm, to 3.5?), broadly perforated endostomal segments from a high basal membrane. This species is rare in the tropical Andes, only known from a single locality in Colombia; other collections in Tropicos apparently incorrect.
 
Specimen: Colombia: Cauca, Purace Pennell & Killip 6656 (NY).
