Small ground-hugging fern with a short rhizome. Thin hairless stems bearing pale green wedge-shaped or fan-shaped leaves with toothed edges on the broad tip. The tip of the stems (frond) can root and form a new plant and this helps it form colonies. Small delicate drooping fronds with fan-shaped leaflets arranged along a central slender green to brown stem with repeated forking veins with thin linear structures called sori that contain the fern spores along these veins on the underside of the leaflet.
