Cells spherical, 10-20 µm in diameter, extracellular matrix (< 1 µm thick), rose-red to red, phototactic. Single plastid with numerous lobes extending from multiple pyrenoids located throughout the cell. Pyrenoids containing numerous tubular thylakoids border the cytoplasm and usually surrounded by starch granules. Peripheral thylakoids are absent. Arrays of small (30-60 nm) uniform electron dense globules often occur between thylakoids. Each Golgi body always associated with a mitochondrion and located near the cell periphery. The nucleus peripheral with a single central to eccentric nucleolus. LMWCs are floridoside and digeneaside.
