Phylactocarps bearing gonothecae, from NAD 21F and TRA 38H respectively. B. The distal part of the hydrodadium-bearing tube of the stem to show segmentation and cauline nematothecae, from NAD 21F. D. Two nematothecae from a phylactocarp, one with 2 apertures and the other with 3. Description. Colonies large, reaching a maximum height of 34-5 cm., easily recognizable by the woody nature of the stem and the branching, which is always in one plane. Stem dividing and subdividing in a very irregular fashion, some of the smaller branches showing a tendency towards an alternate arrangement, but frequently opposite or unilateral—the final result is a fan-shaped colony with well-dispersed branches. Hydrocladia borne on the smaller and medium-sized branches, absent.
