Didymodon humboldtii is similar to D. rigidulus var. rigidulus (Cano et al. 2008) in leaf shape, apex, 2 stereid bands, 1 row of guide cells, and presence of gemmae, but differing by the strongly incurved leaves, plane to slightly recurved margins above midleaf, and rounded to oval distal laminal cells. The type of Barbula humboldtii was collected by Herzog in 1911 along the sub-Andean range west of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia.
