Hymenostylium recurvirostrum is distinguished by the small, thick-walled epidermial stem cells, absence of a central strand, the narrowly oblong-lanceolate or ligulate-keeled leaves to 1.2 mm, one or more distinct low papillae over cell lumen, absence of ventral epidermis on costa, presence of two stereid bands viewed in cross-section, generally the columella remaining attached to the operculum, and absence of a peristome. Hymenostylium contextum Herzog, collected by Herzog from the Cerros de Malaga (Cochabamba) in June 1911, is a synonym.
