Notes:

Ecology: Open and forested montane, infrequent in humid páramo and possibly humid puna; on soil and rocks in humid habitats. Elevation: 2050-3800 m (Venezuela: 2900-3500 m, Colombia: 2500-3315 m, Ecuador: 2045 m, Peru: 2050-2770 m, Bolivia: 1090-3800 m, Argentina: ca. 1315 m [elevation of Siambón]). Distribution: Rather widespread in the Neotropics, Africa, Asia, Australasia, and southern Europe.
 
Fissidens curvatus is distinguished by the dimorphic plants, infertile larger than fertile plants, lanceolae to oblong-lanceolate leaves, acute to short acuminate apex, entire margins, bordered throughout, 2-3 stratose, percurrent to excurrent costa, vaginant laminae 1/2-4/5 the leaf length, and smooth to slightly bulging laminal cells. Synonyms include Fissidens bockii Herzog, F. filirameus R.S. Williams, F. indistinctus Müll. Hal., F. lindigii (Hampe) A. Jaeger, F. tequendamensis Mitt. The status of Fissidens indistinctus var. major Müll. Hal. (Linnaea 42: 238. 1879. Argentinia borealis subtropica, Jujui, in muris, 8. Januario 1873, Lorentz) is unknow, possibly equal to F. curvatus.
 
Fissidens curvatus se distingue por las plantas dimórficas, plantas infertiles mayores que las plantas fértiles, hojas lanceoladas a oblongo-lanceoladas, ápices agudos a corto acuminados, márgenes enteros, completamente bordeados, 2-3 estratos, costa percurrente a excurrente, lámina vaginante 1/2-4/5 del largo de la hoja y células de la lámina lisas a escasamente abultadas.
