Bartramia brevifolia is recognized by its differentiated leaf base with thick-walled cells toward the costa and thin-walled cells toward the margins. Material collected in Arizona by Bartram and identified as either B. glauca Lorentz or B. microstoma Mitten is B. brevifolia. The type of B. microstoma is not included with the Mitten herbarium at NY, but several collections of this species from Latin America have been annotated by S. Fransén as B. brevifolia. Fransén (1995) reduced B. glauca to synonymy under B. potosica.
