Leaves usually rosulate, incurved or contorted when dry, oblong-elliptic to oblong-spatulate or oblong-lanceolate to lanceo-ligulate, blunt to rounded-obtuse or weakly apiculate at the apex; margins entire or serrulate; costa stout, percurrent to shortly excurrent; upper leaf cells small, quadrate to rounded-hexagonal, smooth or papillose; basal cells rectangular, smooth, hyaline. Dioicous or autoicous. Perichaetial leaves smaller than or similar to stem leaves.
