Thallus erect, variously branched, lobed, or with percurrent axes bearing radially or irregularly arranged lateral branches, generally mucilaginous, with a smooth or hirsute appearance. Structure uniaxial, rarely multiaxial (Gibsmithia), with a filamentous medulla and cortex, lacking secondary pit connections. Spermatangia in clusters on terminal cells. Carpogonial branches 6–12 (–18) cells long, usually distinctly bent and with short sterile cells or filaments on the lower branch cells; after fertilisation, the carpogonium fusing with 1 or more cells of the carpogonial branch and forming 1 (or more) connecting filaments. Auxiliary cell intercalary in an accessory branch separate from the carpogonial branch, after fusion with the connecting filament forming a gonimoblast initial from the junction or from a cell cut off from the auxiliary cell; most gonimoblast cells converting to carposporangia. Connecting filaments generally progressing to effect further diploidisation. Tetrasporangia zonately or cruciately divided. Life history (where known) triphasic, with isomorphic gametophytes and tetrasporophytes.
