Specialized asexual reproduction by papillose rhizoidal gemmae on abaxial costa surface. Perichaetia with inner leaves ± suddenly narrowed to apex, not plicate, margins irregularly denticulate distally, apex acuminate, laminal cells smooth. Seta orange-yellow or at base reddish, 0.8–1.4 cm. Capsule with annulus separating, 1-seriate or 2-seriate; operculum conic to short-rostrate; exostome teeth lanceolate, brownish yellow, external surface reticulate or reticulate-striate basally or with portions cross-striolate; endostome cilia to 1/2 segment length. Spores finely papillose.
