Dioicous. Perigonia gemmiform, on short, lateral branches. Perichaetia on short, lateral branches, the inner leaves ovate- to oblong-lanceolate, sheathing the base of the seta; cells elongate, thin-walled. Setae elongate; capsules ellipsoidal to ovoid, narrow-mouthed, weakly sulcate when dry; annulus poorly differentiated, consisting of 2 layers of yellowish to reddish, transversely elongate, somewhat vesiculose cells; operculum obliquely long-rostrate; peristome none.
