Microscope view of habit

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 shoots which are pluriseriate and segmented, apart from the basal part of each shoot which is uniseriate. Plurilocular sporangia are formed on small branches which grow from the uniseriate base of the shoots, or originating directly from the upright and pluriseriate part of shoots.
