into a lamina with three segments in one plane curving adaxially
and a heel of small tip downwardly. The central segment the longest.
All three segments close and paralleling arranged. The heel of the
small tip only 0.1–0.2 mm long. Leaf and sporophyll identical morphology,
except the larger curving angle in the latter. Sporophylls not aggregating
strobili. The sporangia, ellipsoidal and oval in shape and with
longitudinal dehiscence, attached adaxially to the sporophyll by a pad.
