Description:
Thallus crustose, cartilaginous, non-calcified, spreading dorsiventrally along the substratum; composed of large-celled branched uniaxial primary filaments that give rise to smaller-celled cortical filaments that spread to form the consolidated crust; cortical filaments developing radially, forming both dorsal and ventral tissues, or laterally and dorsally only, leaving the ventral cortex weakly developed; peg-like attachment haptera present or absent, uniseriate rhizoids absent; possible tetrasporangia embedded within the outer cortex. Gametangia and post-fertilisation events unknown.
