The temperate-tropical genus Lindbergia is distinguished from other members of Leskeaceae by leaves that are wide-spreading to squarrose when moist, short laminal cells, and more or less erect capsules with the endostome reduced to a low membrane. The pseudoparaphyllia are few and foliose, or absent; the leaves are more or less decurrent and concave; the seta is yellow-brown; the capsule is brownish and narrower at the mouth; the exostome teeth are yellow and connate at the base; and the endostome is finely papillose.
