Description
Thalli are filamentous and prostrate. Axes are mono- or oligostichous. Cells contain 2-8 oblong chloroplasts aggregating together and radiating from proximal pyrenoids. Unilocular zoidangia are 20 -25 microns long by 15-20 microns wide, sessile, ovate to elliptical, laterally formed on axes. Unizoids lack an eyespot. Plurilocular gametangia are intercalary or terminal in axes. Sexual reproduction is anisogamous. Gametes lack an eyespot.
