Axes multiaxial, with compact cortex, filamentous medulla. Tetrasporophytes and gametophytes isomorphic. Gametophytes dioecious. Carpogonia and auxiliary cells formed in separate ampullae, carpogonial branches five-celled and auxiliary cell branches four-celled; fusion of carpogonium and hypogynous cell with the basal cell or third cell of carpogonial branch, primary and secondary connecting filaments are formed and markedly elongated auxiliary-cell branch fusion cell formed. Nutritive filaments downwardly and upwardly directed. Pericarps well developed on the basal side by the connection of nutritive filaments and secondary medullary filaments.

Verification of Data
Users are responsible for verifying the accuracy of information before use, as noted on the website Content page.

Some of the descriptions included in AlgaeBase were originally from the unpublished Encyclopedia of Algal Genera, organised in the 1990s by Dr Bruce Parker on behalf of the Phycological Society of America (PSA) and intended to be published in CD format. These AlgaeBase descriptions are now being continually updated, and each current contributor is identified above. The PSA and AlgaeBase warmly acknowledge the generosity of all past and present contributors and particularly the work of Dr Parker.

Descriptions of chrysophyte genera were subsequently published in J. Kristiansen & H.R. Preisig (eds.). 2001. Encyclopedia of Chrysophyte Genera. Bibliotheca Phycologica 110: 1-260.
