Stem leaves erect-spreading, lanceolate, slightly curved, concave, more or less plicate; margins plane, entire, or crenulate near the apex; costae double, weak, often indistinct; leaf cells elongate-rhomboidal to linear-rhomboidal, smooth; basal cells short; alar cells distinctly differentiated, numerous, quadrate; branch leaves larger, often plicate, more or less similar to stem leaves. Dioicous. Inner perichaetial leaves small, lanceolate, slenderly acuminate, long-plicate, margins entire, ecostate. Setae rather short, yellowish brown, smooth, twisted when dry; capsules erect, ovoid, yellowish brown, blackish when old; opercula conic, shortly rostrate; peristome double; exostome teeth narrowly lanceolate, yellowish, cross-striate below, hyaline, papillose on outer surface, trabeculate on inner surface; endostome segments shorter than the teeth; basal membrane high; cilia 1, nodulose, or sometimes reduced.
