Trichostomum brachydontium is characterized by the ligulate leaves to ca. 2.5 mm, acute to ± rounded apex with a stout, recurved mucro, basal cells differentiated across insertion, setae to 10 mm, cylindrical to ellipsoidal capsules to 1.5 mm, mostly reduced peristome; the recurved mucro is a good aid in differentiating other Trichostomum species in Bolivia. Trichostomum duidense E.B. Bartram and T. novogranatense Broth. & Irmsch. in Irmsch. are synonyms.
