Description:
Multiaxial, with secondary pit connections between adjacent cells, and ostiolate cystocarps with a central fusion cell of sterile tissue surrounded by a surface layer of carposporangia. Inner cortical cells are usually stellate (Gabrielson & Kraft 1984). Characteristics of genera within the family were further delineated by Guimarães and Oliveira (1996) to include the presence or absence of interconnecting medullary filaments and nemathecial reproduction, and auxiliary cell complexes recognizable prior to, or after, diploidization.
