Description
Thalli epilithic, polysiphonous, ecorticate, attached by unicellular rhizoids cut off from pericentral cells, terminating multicellular hapteron; 3-7 cm tall, dark brownish red in color; prostrate axes cylindrical, with 7-9 pericentral cells, segments 110-160 µm in diameter; erect axes terete to slightly compressed, with 7-10 pericentral cells, segments 160-210 µm broad in lower portion, 200-360 µm broad in middle to upper portion; branches alternately distichous with subacute apices, borne at intervals of two segments, slightly incurved in upper portion, terete determinate branchlets forming acute apical cell; lateral branches congenitally fused for proximal 1-1.25 segments with the parental axis; trichoblasts entirely lacking; tetrasporangia tetrahedral, formed one per fertile segment in straight series of ultimate branches, 65-75 µm in diameter, surrounded by two presporangial and one post-sporangial cover cells. Other reproductive structures not observed.
