Description

Stem leaves appressed to weakly ascending when dry; spreading to spreading-recurved and keeled when moist.

Leaves ovate-triangular to lanceolate (those pictured here lanceolate), adaxially grooved along costa; margins nearly plane to recurved at mid-leaf; costa short-excurrent in a mucro.

Elongate adaxial costal cells and rounded lumens of distal laminal cells are said to be diagnostic of this species; found on shaded, wet, conglomerate rock outcrop.

The capsules also appear to be a give-away.
