Note: This is a small species, 1-15 mm tall, which grows epiphytically on a number of different algae. Thallus is composed of many upright and unbranched shots which are pluriseriate and segmented, apart from the basal part of each shot which is uniseriate. Plurilocular sporangia are formed on small branches from the uniseriate base of the shoots, or originating directly from the upright and pluriseriate part of shoots.
