Campylopus dicnemoides is readily distinguished in the field by the imbricate leaves and cucullate apices; additional characters include the rather narrow, often spurred costa, and well developed reddish alar cells. Campylopus cucullatifolius Herzog, a most appropriate name for this taxon, is a synonym. The type was collected by Herzog at 3400 m from Tablas (Department of Cochabamba). This taxon was recognized by Frahm (1991) as Campylopus cuspidatus var. dicrnemoides (Mull. Hal.) J.-P. Frahm.
Campylopus dicnemoides se distingue fácilmente en el campo por lashojas imbricadas y ápices cuculados; otras características incluyen la costa bastante angosta, a menudo espolonada y células alares rojizas bien desarrolladas. Campylopus cucullatifolius Herzog, un nombre más apropiado para este taxón, es un sinónimo. El tipo fue colectado por Herzog a 3400 m en Tablas (departamento de Cochabamba).
