Plants small to medium-sized, as loose turfs or scattered plants. Stems 0.1-1 cm, , often bearing subfloral innovations below the gametangia. Leaves , all leaves spreading, ovate-lanceolate to elliptic, 0.4-1.5[-2.5] mm; base slightly decurrent; margins plane, weakly serrulate in distal 1/3; apex ± abruptly acute; costa ending well before apex; distal medial laminal cells broadly rhomboidal; marginal cells weakly but distinctly [to strongly] differentiated from medial cells. Specialized asexual reproduction absent. Sexual condition dioicous; perigonia and perichaetia terminal; perigonial leaf apex short- to ± long-acuminate; outer perichaetial leaves slightly larger, inner leaves slightly smaller than vegetative leaves, somewhat differentiated, lanceolate. Seta single, orange-brown, bent near apex. Capsule pendulous, inclined 160-180°, narrowly cylindric, short-pyriform, or urceolate, 1-3 mm, neck short; exothecial cells near mouth in 2 or 3 rows, medial cell walls strongly collenchymatous; stomata superficial; annulus revoluble; operculum long-conic; peristome double, 4:2:6-8; exostome yellow to light brown, teeth triangular-acute, trabeculate, pitted basally, coarsely or finely papillose distally; endostome basal membrane high, segments wide, strongly keeled, broadly perforate, cilia 1-3.
