I already asked this question on math.stackexchange, but it was suggested that I post it here as well.

The paper Devadoss, Heath, and Vipismakul - Deformations of bordered Riemann surfaces and associahedral polytopes defines bordered Riemann surfaces with geodesic boundaries, punctures, and marked points on the boundaries.

Then it is stated that

Indeed, any stable marked bordered Riemann surface has a unique hyperbolic metric such that it is compatible with the complex structure, where all the boundary circles are geodesics, all punctures are cusps, and all boundary marked points are half cusps.

I understand this statement for the boundaries and the punctures, but not for the marked points on the boundaries.

Can someone explain this to me, maybe with some neat example? Any reference with good examples?
