Bryum clavatum, as discussed and illustrated by Ochi (1970), is distinguished by the oblong, concave leaves, broadly acute to somewhat rounded apex, entire or nearly so margins, rather strong costa that is percurrent to short excurrent, firm-walled laminal cells, 2-4 rows of narrow cells forming a border from the base to midleaf. Other than the few collections cited, very little is known about this taxon in the Andes. Synonyms include Bryum concavum Mitt. and B. laticeps Müll. Hal.
 
Bryum clavatum, como fue tratada e ilustrada por Ochi (1970), se distingue por las hojas oblongas, cóncavas, ápices ampliamente agudos a un poco redondeados, márgenes enteros o casi enteros, costa muy fuerte, percurrente a corto excurrente, células de la lámina con paredes firmes, 2-4 filas de células angostas formando un borde desde la base hasta la mitad de la hoja. A parte de las pocas colecciones citadas, este taxón es poco conocido en los Andes.
