Inner perichaetial leaves lanceolate, up to 1.3 mm long, from oblong-ovate base narrowed to a lanceolate apex; costa ending at middle; margins dentate above. Setae slender, 1.8 mm long, dark brown; capsules erect, oblong-ellipsoidal to cylindrical, 1.6–2.0 mm long, 0.55–0.60 mm thick; peristome double; exostome teeth lanceolate, 0.25 mm long, yellow or dark brown, transversely plicate below, hyaline, smooth above, lamellae low; endostome segments fragile, linear, ca. 1/2 the length of teeth; cilia absent or rudimentary; opercula with long rostrum, 0.5 mm long.
