Notes:

Ecology: Montane to páramo and humid puna; often in wet or boggy habitats, on humus and soil. Elevation: 1000-4550 m (Colombia: ? m, Peru: 3370-4550 m, Bolivia: 1450-4440 m, Argentina: 1000 m). Distribution: Mexico, Central America, Colombia to Argentina.
 
Breutelia austro-arcuata is characterized by the large plant stature to 6 cm, wide spreading to squarrose or squarrose-recurved leaves to 5 mm (when dry), appressed (sheathing) leaf base, short exucurrent costa, short and rather lax cells forming sulcate pockets at the top of the expanded leaf base, sharply serrate distal leaf limb margins, and 5-8 rows of enlarged, hyaline alar cells. Breutelia patens Herzog, collected by Herzog from two localities in the department of Cochabamba, Cerro Sipascoya and Tunarisee, is a synonym. A further synonym is B. straminea Herzog, again made by Herzog from the montane forest of Quellried, near Tables (= Tablas). The type of Bartramia austro-arcuata Müll. Hal. was made by Lorentz from Cuesta de Pinos, Argentina, close to the border of Bolivia.
 
Breutelia austro-arcuata se caracteriza por las planta grandes hasta 6 cm, hojas amplias patentes a escuarrosas o escuarroso-recurvadas hasta 5 mm (en seco), bases de las hojas adpresas (envainadoras), costa corta exucurrente, células cortas y bastante laxas formando bolsillos sulcados en la porción distal de la base expandida de la hoja, márgenes distales del limbo de la hoja nítidamente serrados, y 5-8 filas de células alares agrandadas y hialinas. Breutelia patens Herzog, colectada por Herzog en dos localidades del departmento de Cochabamba, Cerro Sipascoya y Tunarisee, es un sinónimo. Otro sinónimo es B. straminea Herzog, de nuevo colectado por Herzog en el bosque montano de Quellried, cerca de Tables (= Tablas). El tipo de Bartramia austro-arcuata Müll. Hal. fue colectado por Lorentz en Cuesta de Pinos, Argentina, cera de la frontera con Bolivia.
