Autoicous. Androecia closely below the perichaetia. Perichaetial leaves large, sheathing at base. Setae ca. 1.5 cm long, straight, yellowish brown; capsules ovoid-cylindric, curved, strumose, furrowed when dry; exothecial cells elongate, somewhat thick-walled; opercula obliquely short-rostrate; annuli in 1 row of large cells, deciduous; peristome teeth reddish purple, divided 1/3–1/2 down.
