Ecology: Open or forested premontane and montane to shrubby páramo and humid puna; shaded or exposed habitats, on soil, humus, leaf litter, decaying log, occasionally base or exposed roots of trees. Elevation: 500-4600 m (Venezuela: 1100-3800 m, Colombia: 1150-4325 m, Ecuador: 1200-4100 m, Peru: 500-4600 m, Bolivia: 1230-4500 m, NW Argentina: 1600 m). Distribution: Southwest United States, Mexico, rather widespread in the Neotropics, common throughout the tropical Andes, southeast Brazil; Hawaiian Islands, Africa.

Elevación: 500-4600 m (Venezuela: 1100-3800 m, Colombia: 1150-4325 m, Ecuador: 1200-4100 m, Perú: 500-4600 m, Bolivia: 1230-4500 m, NO Argentina: 1600 m). Distribución: Sudeste de los Estados Unidos, México, algo ampliamente distribuida en el Neotrópico, común a través de los Andes Tropicales, sudeste de Brasil; Islas Hawaianas, Africa.
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 billarderi Schwägr. of Ochi (1980) and of recent reports is here restricted to a more narrowly defined species concept following Mohamed (1979).
Bryum andicola es típicamente una planta grande, con hojas formando una roseta distal, obovadas o oblongo-obovadas hasta 6 mm, borde marginal fuerte de 4-6 filas de células lineares, con paredes gruesas; yemas casi siempre presentes, rojas oscuras, cilíndricas y marcadamente papilosas. Bryum billarderi Schwägr. de Ochi (1980) y reportes recientes están restringidos aquí a una definición más del concepto de especies seguido por Mohamed (1979).
