Autoicous. Perichaetial leaves not differentiated from stem leaves. Perigonia budlike. Setae erect, orange-yellow, 1.0–1.5 cm long; capsules oblong-ovoid, apophyses moderately developed, shorter and much narrower than the urns; opercula low-conic, bluntly beaked; annuli none; peristome teeth typical as in the genus.
