Thallus slightly to strongly gelatinous, uncalcified, terete or compressed, with entire or lobed margins; lobes simple or branched; surface smooth or proliferous. Structure multiaxial; medulla and cortex loosely filamentous; cortical cells without secondary pit connections. Spermatangia in clusters on outer cortical cells. Carpogonial branches and auxiliary cells usually on separate cortical branch systems; auxiliary cells intercalary; connecting filaments linking fertilised carpogonium with 1 or more auxiliary cells; ±all cells of gonimoblast differentiating into carposporangia. Tetrasporangia cruciately divided.
