Autoicous or dioicous. Perichaetial leaves similar to the upper stem leaves, slightly larger. Setae straight, short, 3–4 mm long, reddish brown; capsules erect, oblong-ovoid to short-cylindric, symmetric or slightly asymmetric, ca. 1 mm long; opercula conic-rostrate; annuli differentiated; peristome teeth pale yellow, 70–80 µm long, irregularly divided or only perforated, vertically striolate.
