Leaves erect-patent, narrowly lingulate, 2–4 mm × 0.7–1.1 mm, slenderly acuminate at apex, lower leaves usually smaller; margins plane, strongly dentate above the midleaf, formed by 1–3-celled teeth; costa subpercurrent or shortly excurrent, dorsal stereid band present in cross section; upper leaf cells pentagonal to hexagonal; median cells elongate, 50–110 µm × 20–50 µm, thin-walled, hyaline; lower cells rectangular. Autoicous. Perichaetial leaves not differentiated from stem leaves. Perigonia budlike, located on lateral short branches. Setae erect, yellowish, 0.8–1.5 cm long; capsules shortly cylindrical, 1.5–2.0 mm long, apophyses somewhat developed, much shorter than the urns; opercula conic, shortly rostrate; annuli none; peristome teeth typical as in the genus.
