Description:Genus Description - Plants slender but ± elongate, in dull, tangled, pendulous masses. Stems creeping, irregularly pinnate. Leaves wide-spreading and often appearing somewhat complanate, lanceolate, slenderly long-acuminate, somewhat rounded to the insertion and decurrent; margins plane or sometimes recurved near the base, serrulate; costa slender, ending below the apex; cells linear or linear-rhomboidal, ± papillose, often seriate-papillose, those at the insertion somewhat laxer and smooth, a few at the basal angles subquadrate. Dioicous. Perichaetial leaves pale, gradually long-subulate from a sheathing base, ± serrulate at the apex, with lax, smooth cells. Setae 1-4 mm long, nearly smooth; capsules erect and symmetric or ± curved and asymmetric, oblong-oval; annulus poorly differentiated; operculum stoutly and obliquely rostrate; exostome teeth lance-acuminate, cross-striolate near the base, papillose above; endostome finely papillose, with a low to moderate basal membrane and keeled segments, the cilia (if present) rudimentary. Calyptrae cucullate and usually sparsely hairy, rarely mitrate and naked.
