Notes:
Ecology: Open montane to páramo and humid puna; on soil and rocks. Elevation: 1500-4200 m (Venezuela: ? m, Colombia: 2000-3500 m, Ecuador: 1860-3560 m, Peru: 2100 m, Bolivia: 1500-4200 m). Distribution: Widespread, in the Neotropics confined to high elevations.
 
The feature that readily distinguishes B. campylocarpum is the inflated inner basal leaf cells (not unlike Syrrhopodon); B. jamesonii is similar with strongly toothed and plane distal margins, but the inner basal cells are gradually differentiated, and somewhat thick-walled, not inflated. Bryoerythrophyllum campylocarpum was previously considered a synonym of B. jamesonii (Zander, 1978), however, later studies (Long 1982, Zander 1986) recognized the former taxon as district. Between the former and latter studies many collections were named B. jamesonii; most collections now require re-examination to determine the correct name. Synonyms include Didymodon angustulus Herzog, Syrrhopodon crispatus Hampe, S. jamesonii Taylor, Tortula arcuata Mitt., Trichostomum campylopyxis Müll. Hal.
 
La característica que diferencia fácilmente a B. campylocarpum es la presencia de células infladas en la región basal interna de la hoja (como en Syrrhopodon); B. jamesonii es similar con márgenes marcadamente dentados y la porción distal plana, pero las células basales internas están diferenciadas gradualmente y tienen paredes algo gruesas, no infladas. Bryoerythrophyllum campylocarpum fue considerada previamente un sinónimo de B. jamesonii (Zander, 1978), sin embargo, estudios posteriores (Largo 1982, Zander 1986) reconocen que el primer taxón es distinto. Entre el primer estudio y los posteriores, muchas colecciones fueron nombradas como B. jamesonii; la mayoría de las colecciones actualmente requieren ser examinadas nuevamente para determinar el nombre correcto.
