Description:
Plants epiphytic or epilithic. Growth from apical cells. Thalli either branched, terete, or foliose, pseudoparenchymatous with medulla and cortex, or heterotrichous and crustose. Cells containing several discoid plastids with a few occasional small, protruding pyrenoids. Phaeophycean hairs either clustered, growing from cryptostomata, or isolated, originating from cells of the erect filaments. Unilocular sporangia terminal, either transformed from cortical cells in pseudoparenchymatous taxa, or developing from the apex of erect filaments of crustose forms. Plurilocular sporangia transformed from assimilatory filaments, terminal, often uniseriate. Life history isomorphic. Emended diagnosis ( Silberfeld et al. 2014).
