Secondary wood with tracheids that have predominantly uniseriate rows of podocarpoid pits on the radial walls. Pit contiguity is low 1.6–3.4. Cross-field regions with 1–3, rarely four pits; where two pits are present they are opposite or oblique and only rarely vertically arranged.
Latin, communis, in reference to the abundance of this taxon with respect to other coniferous morphotypes within this flora.
