Tiered Stemleaf has modified its body plan. To make space for more leaves to increase its photosynthesizing surface, It has shifted the position of its leaves. The first set of leaves will grow much as its ancestors. The next set will grow in between them and then shift upward or downward and then align them with the original set of leaves. This alignment allows for new sets to be grown and shifted into position without interference from other leaf sets. Its spore production has moved to a crown shaped structure at the center of the stems topmost leaves. It is otherwise much like its ancestor, reproducing through airborne spores which germinate on contact with the soil.
