Cryphaea pilifera is characterized by the piliferous leaf apices, costa appearing excurrent (ending in the acumen), round to short elliptical median and upper laminal cells. The distal margins tend to be toothed in southern Andean populations and entire or subentire in northern populations. Cryphaea tenuicaulis Müll. Hal., based on a collection by Rusby in 1886 from Sorata, is a synonym.
