All collections under this name from the tropical Andes should be re-examined; it is likely that all will be referred to C. stenocarpus. Differentiation of C. purpureus are C. stenocarpus involve sporophytic features: C. purpureus is characterized by peristome teeth cross-bared in lower 1/2-1/3, appearing perforate, distal tips finely papillose, setae dark red or purple, and capsules horizontal, ovoid, strumose, strongly furrowed when old; C. stenocarpus is characterized by peristome teeth separate to near the base or cross-bared just above the base, tips coarsely papillose or papillose-spiculose, setae pale-yellow or red, and capsules suberect, cylindric, not strumose, smooth or slight furrowed when old. No specimens were cited by Burley and Pritchard (1990) from the tropical Andes.
