Plants moderate-sized, weak-stemmed, lax; yellowish to golden brown; forming loose carpets; branches loosely imbricate. Stems yellow to brown, superficial cortical layer with spiral reinforcing fibrils visible, 1 or more pores/cell, comb-fibrils on interior wall. Stem leaves short-rectangular, 0.8-1.1 mm, hyaline cells mostly non-septate and absent comb-fibrils. Branch fascicles with 2 spreading and 1-2 hanging branches. Branch stems with hyaline cells non-ornamented, no or weak funnel-like projections on the end walls of cortical cells, cortical cell walls usually with large round pores. Branch leaves ovate to ovate-elliptic, 1.4-1.8 mm; hyaline cells on convex surface with numerous pores along the commissures; comb-lamellae obvious only in proximal 1/2 of leaf; chlorophyllous cells broadly triangular in transverse section and well-enclosed on the convex surface. Sexual condition dioecious. Spores (22) 24-27(-28) µm, surface granulate.
