What a splendid moss! Originally named by R.S. Williams as a member of the genus Syrrhopodon based on a collection from Pelichuco made by him in 1902, and later redescribed by Thériot as Leptodontium calymperoides Thér. Both names testify to the resemblance of this taxon to the family Calymperaceae due to the conspicuously enlarged leaf cancellinae. The leaf base (equal to or slightly less the length of the limb) is broadly obovate with hyaline cells forming a cancellinae occupying most of the area, and the margins bordered by ca. 6-8 rows of narrowly rectangular papillose cells.
 
¡Qué musgo más espléndido! Nombrado originalmente por R.S. Williams como un miembro del género Syrrhopodon basado en una colección de Pelechuco realizada por él mismo en 1902, y posteriormente fue redescrita por Thériot como Leptodontium calymperoides Thér. Ambos nombres muestran la semejanza de este taxón con la familia Calymperaceae debido a las hojas con cancelinas conspicuamente agrandadas. La base de la hoja (igual a o escasamente menor en longitud al limbo) es anchamente obovada con células hialinas formando una cancelina ocupando la mayoría del área, y los márgenes bordeado por ca. 6-8 filas de células papilosas angostamente rectangulares.
