Calymperes nicaraguense is distinguished by the long subulate leaves from a sheathing, expanded base, gemmae on the ventral costa tip, absent or weakly developed teniolae, smooth, not mamillose, on the distal ventral surface of the cancellinae, and teniolae with entire cell walls. Calymperes bolivianum R.S. Williams, collected by Williams in 1902 from Mapiri, is a synonym.
