Type material. Syntype male and female: Lorne, Victoria, Australia, from moss, I.1928, C. Oke, C. Gabriel ( NMV K100/K101) (NOTE second female in sealed vial, K102, is not conspecific).

Selected material examined. AUSTRALIA: Victoria: Great Otway National Park, track to Cora Lynn Cascades, near Lorne , 22.IV.2006, M. Rix, 2♁, 6♀ ( WAM T77726 View Materials )   ; same data, 1♁ ( WAM T80013 View Materials DNA-MPE)   ; Great Otway National Park, Maits Rest, 10 km W. of Apollo Bay , 23.IV.2006, M. Rix, 2♁, 1♀ ( WAM T94451 View Materials )   ; Great Otway National Park, Melba Gully , 24.IV.2006, M. Rix, 1♁, 1♀ ( WAM T94452 View Materials )   ; Otway Ranges, Beauchamp Falls , 24.IV.2006, M. Rix, 2♀ ( WAM T94442 View Materials )   ; Yarra Ranges National Park, ‘ The Beeches’, near Marysville , 18.IV.2006, M. Rix, 4♁, 7♀ ( WAM T94453 View Materials SEM♁ ♀)   .

Remarks. Micropholcomma bryophilum   is similar to, and often sympatric with, M. caeligenum   , e.g. in the Yarra Ranges and Otway Ranges of Victoria. It can be most easily distinguished by the smaller size and presence of a four-segmented pedipalp on the female (Fig. 19C).
