Aulacomnium is a mostly north cool temperate genus of seven species; only a single species is known in the Neotropics. Aulacomnium palustre is known from all tropical Andean countries except Colombia where it is likely to be found with further exploration of páramo bogs. The recurved leaf margins, stellate unipapillose cells, and distal stems naked or with highly reduced leaves are diagnostic.

Aulacomnium palustre es conocida de todos los países de los Andes Tropicales excepto Colombia donde es posible que sea encontrado con exploraciones posteriores en pantanos de altas elevaciones. Los márgenes recurvados de las hojas, células estrelladas unipapilosas, y tallos distales desnudos o con hojas muy reducidas son diagnóstico.
