Plants large, yellowish green when young, reddish brown when old, somewhat glossy, in loose tufts. Stems erect, simple or multi-branched; branch tips often hooked when dry; tomentose below, rhizoids papillose; central strand developed. Leaves loosely arranged, erect-patent or secund, ovate at base, narrowly lanceolate to slenderly acuminate toward apex; margins slightly recurved, serrate except at base; costae slender, percurrent or shortly excurrent; upper leaf cells linear, thick-walled, more or less smooth; median cells rectangular, lax, thin- to slightly thick-walled, with central papillae or with papillae at upper cell ends, sometimes smooth; basal leaf cells broadly rhomboidal, smooth; marginal cells narrowly rectangular. Dioicous. Perichaetial leaves similar to vegetative leaves. Setae elongate, straight or curved above; capsules pyriform or elongate-ovoid, inclined to horizontal, reddish brown; neck long, smooth; opercula conic, shortly rostrate; annuli not differentiated; peristome double; exostome teeth lanceolate, with a median zigzag line, trabeculate on inner surface; endostome segments split above; basal membrane low, yellowish brown; cilia 1–2, short.
