Cryphaea ramosa is distinguished by the short ovate-oblong leaves, acute apex, dentate below the apex, costa extending to ca. 2/3 the leaf length, and elliptical median and upper lamina cells. Cryphaea boliviana Schimp. ex E. Britton, based on a collection made by Mandon in 1857 from Sorata, is a synonym. A further synonym, used previously in the tropical Andes, is Cryphaea fasciculosa Mitt.
