Plants in dense tufts. Stems creeping, subpinnately or pinnately branched; branches up to 5 cm long, curved or erect; paraphyllia few, triangular to lanceolate. Stem leaves appressed when dry, ovate-lanceolate, acuminate to acute or mucronate at apex, 1.0 mm × 0.4 mm, concave, almost without plication; leaf margins recurved almost throughout; costa thick, strong, percurrent, convex at back, usually flexuous; median leaf cells long-rhomboidal to sublinear, thin-walled, projecting at upper ends, 25–35 µm × 4.0–4.5 µm, slightly shorter at lower part, basal cells near margins rectangular, 15–20 µm × 5–9 µm; alar cells flatly quadrate, 8–13 µm wide; branch leaves somewhat smaller than stem leaves with upper costa dentate at back side. Dioicous. Inner perichaetial leaves ovate to oblong, gradually narrowed up to 1.7 mm long; costa short, entire. Setae 7–10 mm long, erect, brown; capsules erect, long-ellipsoidal to cylindrical, 1.3–1.5 mm long, 0.6–0.7 mm thick; peristome double; exostome teeth lanceolate, narrowed, yellowish, striate at lower part, almost smooth at upper part, lamella blurred; endostome segments shorter than exostome teeth, smooth; linear, fragile; opercula 0.4 mm long.
