Original publication: Kützing, F.T. (1843). Phycologia generalis oder Anatomie, Physiologie und Systemkunde der Tange. Mit 80 farbig gedruckten Tafeln, gezeichnet und gravirt vom Verfasser. pp. [part 1]: [i]-xxxii, [1]-142, [part 2:] 143-458, 1, err.], pls 1-80. Leipzig: F.A. Brockhaus.

Thallus uniaxial, usually erect; each axial cell bearing 1–4 whorl branches or determinate branches. Vesicular cells usually absent. Cells uninucleate or, rarely, multinucleate. Gametophytes usually dioecious; spermatangia terminal on cells of the whorl branches or spermatangial filaments on cells of the determinate lateral branchlets. Carpogonial branches 4-celled, abaxial on the lower lateral sides of either the basal cells (periaxial cells) of whorl branches (most of the tribes), or on single-celled laterals that are homologous to muchreduced whorl branches (i.e. periaxial cells) in the Callithamnieae (Hommersand, 1963: 313); procarps lacking a sterile cell group; auxiliary cell cutting off multiple gonimolobes composed of synchronously developing carposporangia; cystocarps naked or involucrate. Putative meiosporangia tetrahedrally or, rarely, octahedrally divided, sessile on cells of the whorl branches or determinate laterals.
