Leptopterigynandrum austro-alpinum is distinguished by the rounded or cordate leaf base, short acuminate leaf apex ending terminating with 1-2 cells long, serrulate to serrate upper margins, costa less than 1/2 the leaf length, and alar cells at base from margin toward costa in 6-9 rows. The type was collected by Lorentz in 1872 from Tucuman, Argentina. Leptopterigynandrum clavatum W.R. Buck & H.A. Crum, collected by Williams from Rio Pelechuco, is a synonym.
