general taxon notes:
Ecology. Open Yungas and Tucuman-Bolivian montane to puna; on soil, leaf litter, rocks and base of shrubs and trees. Elevation. 2015-4160 m. Distribution. Bolivia: Chuquisaca, Cochabamba, La Paz, Santa Cruz. World range: endemic to the tropical Andes (Colombia and Bolivia).
Ecología. Montano abierto de Yungas y Tucumano-boliviano a puna; sobre suelo, hojarasca, rocas y bases de arbustos y árboles. Altitud. 2015-4160 m. Distribución. Bolivia: Chuquisaca, Cochabamba, La Paz y Santa Cruz. Distribución mundial: endémica de los Andes tropicales (Colombia y Bolivia).
Leptodontium planifolium is characterized by the presence of a stem hyalodermis (usually fluted), reniform shaped costa viewed in cross-section, with the costa ending 5-12 cells below the leaf apex; L. filicola is similar but the costa is elliptical in shape, and the costa ends 2-3 cells below the laef apex; see additional comments under L. filicola. Both species appear to be equally common in Bolivia, however L. planifolium ranges higher in elevation, extending into the humid puna. The type of L. planifolium was collected by Herzog from Río Saujana, north of Viloco (Department of La Paz).
Leptodontium planifolium se caracteriza por la presencia de hialodermis en el tallo (generalmente acostillado), costa reniforme vista en corte transversal, con la costa terminando 5-12 células debajo del ápice de la hoja; L. filicola es similar pero la costa es elíptica, y termina 2-3 células debajo del ápice de la hoja; ver comentarios adicionales en L. filicola. Ambas especies parecen ser igualmente comunes en Bolivia, sin embargo L. planifolium alcanza mayor altitud, extendiéndose en la puna húmeda. El tipo de L. planifolium fue colectado por Herzog en Río Saujana, norte de Viloco (departamento de La Paz).
