Thalli microscopic or macroscopic, including coccoid, sarcinoid, filamentous or blade-like forms. Cells uni- or multinucleate, generally possessing a single parietal chloroplast with one to several pyrenoids. Life history variable, some members have a diplohaplontic cell cycle, isomorphic or heteromorphic with filamentous or blade-like gametophyte and unicellular, microscopic, usually stalked sporophyte (Codiolum stage); in other members sexual reproduction and Codiolum stage unknown. Motile cells covered with tiny diamond-shaped organic body scales.
