Description Member of the Kallymeniaceae with foliose thalli, the blades solidly membranous or apparently obligately perforate, the medulla primarily of sparse filaments and stellate cells with elongate, slender arms. Supporting cells polycarpogonial and lacking subsidiary cells, bearing 3-16 carpogonial branches, these generally with relatively large ovate to pyriform basal cells. Nonprocarpic, fusion cell prominent, incorporating the supporting and basal cells of carpogonial branches. Auxiliary cells with 5-8 single- or (rarely) two-celled subsidiary laterals. Carposporophytes embedded in the medulla and distributed widely across blades, composed of clusters of carposporangia separated by sterile filaments. Spermatangia arising from outer cortical cells or from spermatangial mother cells borne on outer cortical cells. Tetrasporangia scattered in the cortex, subspherical to ellipsoidal, cruciately or irregularly zonately divided, basally or laterally pit-connected. [details]
