Description: Sporophyte with holdfast comprising narrow, branched haptera. Stipe simple, compressed, often forming fimbriae, which can become secondary haptera, on the mid- to upper part of the stipe. Blade relatively thin, flat, or bullate, with a narrow to broad midrib and perforations in lateral wings. Sori forming broad patches on both surfaces of blade.

Verification of data
Users are responsible for verifying the accuracy of information before use, as noted on the website Content page.
Some of the descriptions included in AlgaeBase were originally from the unpublished Encyclopedia of Algal Genera, organised in the 1990s by Dr Bruce Parker on behalf of the Phycological Society of America (PSA) and intended to be published in CD format. These AlgaeBase descriptions are now being continually updated, and each current contributor is identified above. The PSA and AlgaeBase warmly acknowledge the generosity of all past and present contributors and particularly the work of Dr Parker.
Descriptions of chrysophyte genera were subsequently published in J. Kristiansen & H.R. Preisig (eds.). 2001. Encyclopedia of Chrysophyte Genera. Bibliotheca Phycologica 110: 1-260.
