Lamina up to 46 × 25 cm, narrowly elliptic to ovate-lanceolate in outline, 2-pinnatifid, apex tapering to a point with pinnatifid terminal segment, basal pair of pinnae somewhat reduced and deflexed. Pinnae narrowly oblong, base truncate, incised three quarters of the way to the costa into broadly oblong ultimate lobes, apex rounded, margin lobed; both surfaces hairy, more so along the veins, costa and costules; veins not meeting below or rarely touching at the sinus or one vein ending in the sinus and the other slightly above it.
