This is a terrestrial species.
Easily fragmenting unbranched filaments so that the cells are usually solitary or in two-celled filaments. On solid medium, longer filaments with 5-10(-20) cells are formed. The cells are cylindrical, with dimensions (2.5-)2.8-3.8(-4.2) × (4.0-)4.5-10.7(-11.8) µm. The cell wall is thin, without any thickenings. The cells possess a single parietal chloroplast with a single starch-enveloped pyrenoid. The envelope is composed of several isolated starch grains. Asexual reproduction proceeds by means of vegetative cell division. Neither production of zoospores nor sexual reproduction was observed.
Type locality: Kampong Kuala Jenera, Kelantan, Malaysia (Nestupa, Eliás & Sejnohová 2007: 61-62). Holotype: J.Neustupa; 29.i. 2000; Surface soil crust on a tree base in a secondary lowland rainforest. PRC AL1/2006 (Nestupa, Eliás & Sejnohová 2007: 61). Notes: The name of the species is derived from the name of a village close to the type locality. The original strain is kept in the Culture Collection of Charles University of Prague (CAUP) as strain CAUP J 1302.
