This species is characterized by the somewhat glossy, dense tufted plants to 2 cm, tomentose below, oblong-elliptical leaves to 6 mm long, short, slender, acuminate-apiculate apex, reflexed below along margin, crenulate to serrulate above, indistinct marginal border of 1-2 cell rows which are elongate and thick-walled, costa ending well below the acumen, porose, rhomboidal to hexagonal-rhomboidal upper cells to 30 µm wide, setae to 4 cm, erect to inclined, clavate capsules to 9 mm long, apiculate, hemispherical operculum. Acidodontium longifolium, originally described as Brachymenium longifoilium Schimp. ex Paris, was based on two syntypes, one collected by Mandon between Caripota and Tani (Department of La Paz), and the second collected by Germain from Choquocamata (Department of Cochabamba).
