Bryum andicola is a typically large plant, with leaves forming a distal rosette, obovate or oblong-obovate to 6 mm, a strong marginal border of 4-6 rows of linear, thick-walled cells; gemmae are nearly always present, dark red, cylindrical and strongly papillose. Bryum billiardieri Schwägr. of Ochi (1980) and of recent reports is here restricted to a more narrowly defined species concept following Mohamed (1979).
