Leptopterigynandrum is a very discontinuously distributed plant with a range extending from Alaska to Argentina in montane and alpine regions. Tentative identification can be suggested by the small plants with somewhat julaceous stems whose leaves have a strongly forked costa. Compound microscope views are necessary to confirm the identification as one looks for the minutely verruculose cuticle on the branch and stem leaves.
