Ecología: Montano alto abierto a páramo y puna; sitios expuestos húmedos o mojados, sobre suelo y rocas. Elevación: 3575-4650 m (Venezuela: ? m, Colombia: 3575-4300 m, Ecuador: 4100 m, Perú: 4000-4400 m, Bolivia: 4000-4650 m). Distribución: Andes tropicales.
Campylopus amboroensis is characterized by the equally foliate leaves, hyaline, serrate tipped leaves, ventral hyalocysts, thick-walled oblong-oval upper cells, elongate thin-walled basal cells and the absence of alar cells. The type of this species is from Cerro Amboró. Oddly the elevation of this locality is much lower than all other records from the tropical Andes including Bolivia which are above 3500 m.
