Description:
Morphologically variable, including filamentous-, sac- and blade-forming thalli. An intermediate disc phase is formed during the thallus ontogeny. Sexual life cycle includes the shell-boring, polyrhizoidal Codiolum phase that produces exit tubes for zoospore release at maturity. The family includes several genera (Gomontia, Eugomontia, Collinsiella, Ulvopsis), with only one (Gomontia) being reported from freshwater habitats.
