Thallus with prostrate and erect axes, generally less than 2 cm tall; prostrate axes stoloniferous, bearing terete to flattened erect axes, these sparingly or pinnately branched. Structure uniaxial, lacking rhizines; segments of apical cells distichously or decussately dividing; attachment system consisting of independent unicellular thick-walled refractive rhizoidal filaments originating from the surface cells and growing into filaments that remain in open connection with their mother cells. Female reproductive system unknown. Spermatangia in raised sori or forming colourless patches in apices of main axes and/or lateral branchlets. Tetrasporangial sori in conical or compressed apical regions of main axes and laterals, arranged irregularly or in parallel transverse or chevron-like rows, tetrahedrally or decussately divided.
