Bryum limbatum is a common moss, particularly in the montane regions, found along streams and rivers. This species is distinguished by the distant arrangement of leaves that are ovate to oblong-ovate and broadly acute or acuminate (to ca. 2 mm long), leaf base decurrent, relatively strong costa that is subpercurrent to percurrent (sometimes short excurrent), a distinct border of 3-4(5) rows of thick-walled elongate cells, and upper laminal cells firm-walled. Bryum apiculatum, found in similar habitats as B limbatum, often co-occur together; the former differs in the oblong acute leaves that are strongly concave. Synonyms include Bryum maynense Spruce ex Mitt., B. socorrense (Hampe) Mitt.
 
Bryum limbatum es un musgo común, especialmente en las regiones montanas, se encuentra a lo largo de quebradas y ríos. Esta especie se distingue por la disposición separada de las hojas que son ovadas a oblongo-ovadas y ampliamente agudas o acuminadas (hasta ca. 2 mm de largo), base de la hoja decurrente, costa relativamente       fuerte subpercurrente a percurrente (algunas veces corto excurrente), borde conspicuo de 3-4(5) filas de células alargadas con pared gruesas y células superiores de la lámina con paredes firmes. Bryum apiculatum, se encuentra en hábitats similares como B limbatum, a menudo coexisten juntas; la primera se diferencia por las hojas oblongas agudas, marcadamente cóncavas.
