Leaves loosely imbricate; dorsal leaves symmetric; lateral leaves somewhat larger, slightly asymmetric, spreading, in 2 ranks, elliptical, 1.5–2.0 mm × 0.5–0.8 mm, concave, narrowed toward base, slightly decurrent at base; margins serrulate near the apex; costae slender, reaching ca. 1/2 the leaf length; median leaf cells rhomboidal, 57–96 µm × 7–8 µm, thin-walled, smooth; apical cells shorter; basal cells broader; alar cells differentiated, irregularly quadrate or shortly rectangular, 10–20 µm × ca. 10 µm, clearly porose. Autoicous. Perigonia located near perichaetia, bud-like. Perichaetia on branches; perichaetial leaves ovate-lanceolate, narrowly acuminate, serrulate in the upper margins. Setae 7–8 mm long, reddish, smooth, slightly twisted above; capsules erect, oblong-ovoid, symmetric, neck distinct; opercula small, shortly obliquely rostrate; peristome inserted above the mouth; exostome teeth broadly lanceolate, blunt at apex, reflexed when dry, with zig-zag median line, cross-striolate below, papillose above; endostome segments shorter than the teeth, perforate, papillose; basal membrane ca. 1/3 the endostome height; cilia absent.
