Description: Member of the Kallymeniaceae with foliose blades; medulla filamentous and lax, the slender filaments intermixed with a network of ganglionic and deeply staining refractive cells that issue long narrow arms; inner cortex typically one or two layers of periclinally compressed cells bearing two or three layers of smaller outer cortical cells that diminish in size outwardly. Nonprocarpic, carpogonial branch system monocarpogonial, with 3-6 subsidiary cells enlarged and lobed. Fusion cell prominent, deeply lobed, incorporating the supporting and subsidiary cells, and forming numerous connecting filaments that attach to the supporting cell of the auxiliary cell system, which has up to six subsidiary cells. Gonimoblast filaments borne on the connecting filaments, forming a protruding gonimoblast.
Origin of description: this description is from the original publication; it may have been modified slightly.
Numbers of names and species: There are 2 species names in the database at present, of which 2 have been flagged as accepted taxonomically on the basis of the listed literature under the species name. In some instances, opinions on taxonomic validity differ from author to author and users are encouraged to form their own opinion. AlgaeBase is a work in progress and should not be regarded as a definitive source only as a guide to the literature..
Names: ('C' indicates a name that is accepted taxonomically; 'S' a homotypic or heterotypic synonym; 'U' indicates a name of uncertain taxonomic status, but which has been subjected to some verification nomenclaturally; 'P' indicates a preliminary AlgaeBase entry that has not been subjected to any kind of verification.

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Some of the descriptions included in AlgaeBase were originally from the unpublished Encyclopedia of Algal Genera, organised in the 1990s by Dr Bruce Parker on behalf of the Phycological Society of America (PSA) and intended to be published in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.
