Shrub, erect, with branches strict, lateral with elongate extension shoots and short determinate laterals, both types flowering, the short shoots occasionally branched pseudo-dichotomously. Stems orange-brown?, 4-lined and ancipitous when young, soon 2-lined, eventually terete, cortex exfoliating in strips; internodes 3-6 mm long. Leaves sessile, appressed to ascending, markedly tetrastichous, persistent (deciduous with cortex); lamina 7-10 x 1.5-2.5 mm, linear- lanceolate to linear-oblong, plane to loosely incurved, subcucullate, not or slightly carinate, concolorous, not glaucous, subcoriaceous; apex acute, base parallel to rounded, not sheathing, free; basal veins 1(3), unbranched or with 1-2 pairs of ascending near-basal lateral branches, tertiary reticulation not visible or absent; laminar glands rather sparse, not prominent. Inflorescence 1-flowered, occasionally with pseudo-dichotomous branches from node below; pedicel 3-4 mm long, not or scarcely incrassate upwards; upper leaves foliose. Flowers not observed when expanded. Sepals 5.5-7 x 1.5 mm, narrowly lanceolate, acute, subcucullate; veins 5, laterals branching above, with midrib slightly prominent below; glands linear, distally sparsely punctiform or absent. Petals c.8 x 2.5 mm, c. 1.3 x sepals, oblanceolate, apiculus ?; glands?. Stamens c. 60, longest 5.5-6 mm long, c. 0.7 x petals. Ovary not seen; styles 3, c. 3 mm long; stigmas narrowly capitate. Capsule c. 4 x 2-5 mm (? immature), ovoid, shorter than sepals. Seeds not seen.
