Bryum micronitidum is characterized by small plants forming dense tufts to 7 mm high, the leaves closely imbricate are obvate- to triangular-lanceolate, margins revolute nearly throughout, entire to serrulate at the leaf tips, apex long acuminate with the costa short excurrent, upper laminal cells thin-walled, nearly linear, basal cells broader, ± short rectangular. Ochi (1980) considers this species related to the B. alpinum group. The type of this species was collected by Mandon from the region of Sorata. Brachymenium atropurpureum Schimp. ex Paris is an illegitimate name.
