Exarch, solid primary xylem cylinder, with several peripheral ridges of protoxylem; primary xylem surrounded by a complete layer of secondary xylem including rays. Strobilus composed of a central axis bearing densely placed sporophylls. Presence of micro- and of putative megaspores, but mono- or bisporangiate nature of strobili unknown. Sporophylls disposed in a low helix or in pseudowhorls. Sporophylls consisting of a sub-horizontal proximal portion (pedicel) and a long distal (sub)vertical lamina. Pedicel devoid of alation and of keel. Pedicel bearing one sporangium on its adaxial surface. Sporophyll lamina with trichome-like appendages on its margin. No ligule has been observed.
