general taxon notes:
Ecology. Open or forested Yungas montane to semi-humid and humid puna; often in boggy or seepy habitats, also along streams, on humus, rocks. Elevation. 1800-3810 m. Distribution. Bolivia: Cochabamba, La Paz, Santa Cruz. World range: widespread, in the tropics mostly at mid to high elevations.
 
Ecología. Montano abierto o bosque montano de Yungas a puna semi-húmeda y húmeda a menudo en hábitats pantanoso o filtraciones, también a lo largo de quebradas, sobre humus, rocas. Altitud. 1800-3810 m. Distribución. Bolivia: Cochabamba, La Paz y Santa Cruz. Distribución mundial: amplia distribución, en los trópicos generalmente en altitudes medias a grandes.
 
Plants large, red or red-tinged. Stem and branch cortical cells are delicately fibrillose; branch leaf hyalocysts are flat on both surfaces; chlorocysts in section are shortly elliptic and entirely included; hyaline cells are plane on both surfaces. Similar to S. alegrense which shows a slight development of short, vermiform ridges on the inner side walls of branch leaf hyalocysts and the cortical cells sometimes lacking fibrils. Sphagnum magellanicum by far the most commonly collected and named species in Bolivia, in large part due to the relative ease of identification. Assigned to section Sphagnum.
 
Plantas grandes, rojas o matizadas con rojo. Células corticales de tallos y ramas delicadamente fibrilosas; hialocistos de las hojas de las ramas planos en ambas superficies; clorocistos en corte tranversal un poco elípticos y completamente incluidos; células hialinas planas en ambas superficies. Así como en S. alegrense que presenta estrías vermiformes, cortas, poco desarrolladas, en las paredes internas de los hialocistos de las hojas de las ramas y células corticales algunas veces sin fibrillas. Sphagnum magellanicum es la especie más comúnmente colectada y nombrada en Bolivia, en gran parte debido a su fácil identificación. Asignada a la sección Sphagnum.
