Description
A primary creeping axis bearing compressed to flattened branchlets exhibiting a midrib. Axial cells bear 4 pericentral cells. Lateral pericentral cells of the branchlet bear 2 flanking cells (each a half length of the pericentral cells), resulting in branchlets 5 cells wide. Large cells at the apex divide transversely to produce hairs that grow basally.
