Bryum atenense is related to B. capillare (if not included in that species). Ochi (1980: 141) differentiates B. atenense by the smaller plants, broadly oblong to oblong lanceolate leaves, plane leaf margins that are indistinctly bordered by a single row of elongate cells, and long excurrent costa. Only the weak border and plane, not recurred, margins seem to distinguish this species from the typical form of B. capillare. This species is also recorded for the Amazon and Cerrado regions of Brazil based on a few collections determined by Ochi (see Tropicos). The type was collected by Williams in 1902 near Aten.
Bryum atenense está relacionada con B. capillare (si no está incluida en esta especie). Ochi (1980: 141) diferencia a B. atenense por las plantas menores, hojas ampliamente oblongas a oblongas lanceoladas, márgenes de las hojas planos indistintamente bordeados por sólo una fila de células alargadas y costa largo excurrente. Sólo el borde débil y los márgenes planos, no recurvados, parecen diferenciar a esta especie de la forma típica de B. capillare. Esta especie también ha sido registrada en la región amazónica y el Cerrado de Brasil en base a pocas colecciones determinadas por Ochi (ver Tropicos). El tipo fue colectado por Williams en 1902 cerca de Aten.
