general taxon notes:
Sinskea differs from Chrysocladium by the narrowly linear, pluripapillose leaf cells, the alar cells conspicuously differentiated, and the axillary hairs that are five cells long. Sinskea consists of two species in the world (Crosby et al. 2000), and both are known in China.

Plants medium-sized, slender, yellowish green to yellowish brown or blackish brown, not glossy. Primary stems creeping; secondary stems pendulous, erect-patent or creeping, to 5–10 cm long, irregularly branched; both stems and branches curved when dry, rigid, attenuate or obtuse at the apex. Stem and branch leaves similar, erect-patent when dry or moist, ovate-lanceolate or cordate-lanceolate, rather abruptly narrowed to a slender apex, sometimes recurved above; leaf bases not U-shaped at the insertion; margins serrulate to serrate above; costae single, slender, reaching about mid-leaf; median leaf cells narrowly rhomboidal to linear, with (1–)2–3 papillae in a row per cell, rarely constantly pluripapillose, thick-walled; alar cells subquadrate or irregular, thick-walled, often porose, colored; axillary hairs consisting of some 5 hyaline, narrow cells. Dioicous. Setae 1.0–1.5 mm long, sometimes slightly scabrose; capsules nearly immersed to emergent, erect, ovoid; opercula conic, obliquely rostrate; annuli differentiated, in 2–3 rows of small, thick-walled cells; peristome double; exostome teeth lanceolate, thick, lamellate, finely papillose; endostome segments linear-lanceolate, nearly as long as the teeth, perforate; basal membrane low; cilia rudimentary. Calyptrae cucullate, smooth. Spores subspherical, finely papillose.
