Plants erect, uniaxial. Each axial cell bearing three whorl-branchlets, with an alternating major branchlet opposite two minor whorl-branchlets. Gland cells absent. Cells uninucleate. Gametophytes dioecious; spermatangia clustered, terminal on ultimate divisions of the whorl-branchlets; carpogonial branches four-celled, adaxial on the upper sides of basal cells of major whorl-branchlets. Fertilization followed by development of a three-celled auxiliary-cell branch; diploidization of the auxiliary cell effected by a connecting cell between the carpogonium and the subapical cell of the auxiliary-cell branch. Tetrasporangia decussately to cruciately divided, borne on filaments arising on basal cells of major and minor whorl-branchlets.
Provisionally retained in the Ceramiales by Han-Gu Choi et al. (2008).They note that this family shows affinities to the Gracilariales and Plocamiales.
