50 cm tall; dark brown to blackish petioles and rachises, the rachises not flexuous, bearing hairs and filiform scales, adaxially slightly sulcate and with two narrow wings; the laminae light green, 2-3-pinnate at the base, sometimes the proximal pinnules only lobate, subcoriaceous and glabrous on the laminar tissue; pinnules varying from ovate to lanceolate (Figs.
Leaves to 80 cm long, deciduous along a straight line in about 70-90 mm from the leaf base, the apex of the remaining rest incurving; sheaths to 50 mm wide, to 25 mm high, abaxially brown-castaneous, adaxially light brown, entire; blades grass-like, 7-17 mm wide, linear, long attenuate, entire, strongly canaled at the base, adaxial glabrous and abaxail pubescent of simple hears.
Lamina large, 130-202 x 40-65 cm, pinnate-pinnatisect, elliptic to lanceolate, dark green adaxially, pale green abaxially, with a pinnatifid apex, subcoriaceous to coriaceous, rachis dark brown and shiny, glabrous adaxially, few lower pinnae at the base, abruptly narrowed and more sparsely placed.
