Chionoloma tenuirostre is characterized by the presence of a stem hyalodermis usually with a weakly developed central strand, lanceolate leaves to 5 mm that are appressed at the base and curled and contorted above when dry, plane or erect margins, thin-walled, oblong to rectangular basal cells that are even across leaf or extending a short distance along the margin. Trichostomum syrrhopodontoides Herzog is a synonym; the type was collected by Herzog from “Tunarisee” (Department of Cochabamba) at the extreme altitudinal range of 4400 m.  An additional synonym is Trichostomum fallax Herzog, see Alonso et al. 2018.
