Bryum paradoxum, like B. microchaeton, exhibit leaves widest at the base and gradually and evenly tapered (triangular-lanceolate) to the apex; in the former the basal marginal cells are short rectangular to subquadrate, shorter than the juxatcostal cells. Synonyms include Bryum fragilicuspis Herzog and B. rupicola Broth.; the name B. philonoteum Broth. is illegitimate. All were collected by Herzog in the department of Cochabamba.
