Varieties 2 (2 in the flora).
Sporophytes of Barbula indica are rare in the flora area (collection date of the single fruiting collection seen not given). The distal laminal margins are usually plane and the abaxial surface of the costa is prorate, i.e., papillose by projecting ends of cell walls, often forming doubled projections, but sometimes additionally papillose by simple or 2-fid papillae.
