Blades 0,8-2 mm wide, in places of branchings up to 3-5 mm wide, radial and angular, occasionally flattened, sometimes to almost tape-like, identical on a structure and coloring from the top and lower parties, on a surface lakunozno-yamchaty, on all length annularly cracked with the whitish core seen in cracks, simpodialno, dichotomizing, sometimes vaguely branched from the basis or only in top part, with the small shipovidny shoots 2-5 mm long scattered on all length.
