This is a freshwater species.
Cells of branches of unlimited growth cylindrical or barrel-shaped; basal cells of laterals of limited growth bearing two to six branches. Lateral branches solitary, opposite or in whorls of four, those at a node all of limited or all of unlimited growth or some of the one and some of the other; chloroplasts (except in cells of hairs and rhizoids) parietal and reticulate, occupying the whole length of the cell. Rhizoids copiously developed at the base of the plant as well as on the nodes of the branches of unlimited growth, especially when these produce similar branches. Rhizoids with numerous branches, Internodal cells 28-63 µm (average about 35 µm) long and 20-60 µm (average about 30 µm) broad; nodal cells 8-31 µm (average about 16 µm) long and 16-60 µm (average about 33 µm) broad; cells of short laterals 4.2-8.4 µm broad; width of the thallus including the hairs on the short laterals 800-1800 µm (average about i mm), without the hairs 160-500 µm (average about 250 µm).
India, Benares, in a pond.
