Stem leaves remote, widely cordate, squarrose above, with acute or short obtuse apex; margins undulate, serrulate, revolute at base; costa rather wide, ending below leaf apex; branches widely ovate, slightly concave, apex widely obtuse; margins serrate; costa vanishing 5–9 cells below leaf apex; leaf cells rectangular to hexagonal, 7–10 µm wide, unipapillose on both sides, walls equally thickened. Autoicous. Female inflorescences on main branches. Perichaetial leaves suddenly narrowed from an oblong-ovate base to a long lanceolate apex, serrate above. Setae erect, 1.5–2.0 cm long, flexuous, coarse above, smooth below; capsules cylindrical, inclined to horizontal; peristome teeth Hypnum-type; endostome segments nearly as long as exostome teeth; basal membrane moderately high; cilia 2.
