  Colony long, flat rope like strands spreading amorphously sometimes coiling to form a circle. Filaments with sheaths containing multiple, parallel, trichomes. Sheaths colorless, thin and open. Trichomes highly motile, often escaping the sheaths, not constricted at cross walls, with type C cell division, tapering, 4-6 m m wide. End cells conical to capitate with calyptra. Cells quadratic to longer than broad, granular throughout, concentrated at the cross walls, 4.0- 6.0 (8.0) m m long.
