[base#]n, 'base' is a INTEGER 2-64, then '#', followed by the number.

Slightly more exact/pedantic, how about:

 Syntax for integer constants is "[BASE#]STRING", where BASE is in set {2..64},
'#' is the literal, 'hash' or 'crosshatch' (U+0023), and STRING represents a value in the BASE, using ordered characters: address@hidden, where
a = 11, b = 12, ... A = 37, B = 38, Z = 61, @ = 62, _ = 63.
