Lamina narrowly elliptic, 7.2-11 × 0.7-0.8 cm, gradually attenuate or cuneate to stipe, margin entire, apex acute to acuminate; midrib brown, slightly prominent abaxially, plane to grooved adaxially; lateral veins hidden, 1-forked, acroscopic branch shorter than basiscopic branch, not extending beyond sorus, endings with hydathodes; hairs occasional to scattered on all parts of lamina, simple, solitary, medium reddish brown, 0.1-2.6 mm. Sori orbicular or elliptic, superficial, close to midrib. Sporangia setose.
