Resembling B. argenteum, this species is distinguished by the nearly erect capsules, narrowed mouth, low endostomal basal membrane, and 1-2 short, nodulose cilia. This species is only known from a single collection made by Rusby from Sorata; for Bolivia this species is considered tentative since the sporophytes were immature (Ochi 1980: 112).
Parecida a B. argenteum, esta especie se distingue por las cápsulas casi erectas, boca angostada, membrana basal del endostoma baja, y 1-2 cilios cortos, nodulosos. Esta especie sólo ha sido conocida por la colección única realizada por Rusby en Sorata; en Bolivia esta especie es considerada tentativa ya que los esporofitos estaban inmaduros (Ochi 1980: 112).
Specimens: BOLIVIA. La Paz: Sorata, Rusby 3144 (BM; Ochi 1980: 112).
