Climate / Range
Thalli form greenish to cream amorphous clumps, attached by rhizoids at various points where segments get in contact with the substrate. Branches composed of moderately calcified flat segments with a distinct central rib, generally reniform to flabellate with the upper margin entire, sinuate to deeply lobed, 3 to 8 mm high, 4 to 10 mm wide, and 0.5 to 7 mm thick. Cortex consisting of 5 layers of utricles formed by repeated dichotomies from the medullary filaments; outermost utricles adhere slightly after decalcification, hexagonal in surface view, 23 by 40 to 50 Î¼m in transverse section; secondary utricles about 17 Î¼m wide. Central medullary filaments extend along the segments, terete and trichotomously branched, with evident constrictions at a short distance above the point of branching. Amorphous clumps up to 15 cm in diameter (Ref. 80758).
