Autoicous. Perichaetial leaves hardly differentiated, ca. 2 mm long. Setae ca. 2 mm long; capsules shortly exserted, subcylindrical when moist, ca. 1.5 mm long, strongly constricted below the mouth, 8-ribbed when dry, with an indistinct neck; exothecial cells clearly differentiated into bands; stomata superficial; opercula shortly rostrate; peristome double; exostome teeth 16 united in 8 pairs, lanceolate, densely papillose throughout, usually reflexed when dry; endostome segments 8, linear-lanceolate, ca. 2/3 the length of the teeth, hyaline above, smooth on the outer surface, finely papillose on the inner surface.
