The spathulate leaves with a short hyaline to yellowish excurrent awn, costa on back short spinose, unipapillose, simple or branched, rarely bipapillose (dorsal surface) laminal cells, and smooth, ovoid or spherical gemmae present on the upper leaf surface aid to distinguish this species.
 
Las hojas espatuladas con una arista corta hialina a amarillenta excurrente, costa corta espinosa en el envés, células de la lámina unipapilosas, simple o ramificadas, rara vez bipapilosas (superficie dorsal), y yemas ovoides o esféricas, lisas presentes en la superficie superior de la hoja ayudan a distinguir esta especie.
