Setae straight, elongate, (0.5–)1.0–1.8 (–2.5) cm long, yellowish brown; capsules erect, cylindric, straight or nearly so, slightly contracted at base, with a long apophysis, irregularly furrowed when dry; annuli in 2 rows of small cells; peristome teeth linear-lanceolate, divided or perforate to the middle, reddish brown, sometimes with prostome.
