Sporophyte: Abbott and Hollenberg 1976, p. 189, fig. 151 (habit); Scagel 1967, p. 117, fig. 44a (habit), fig. 44b (x-section, vegetative anatomy); Setchell and Gardner 1925, pl. 46, figs. 1, 2 (surface view and x-section of unilocular sporangia), pl. 86 (habit); Wynne 1972a, p. 132, figs. 11, 12 (plurilocular organs on field plants).

Pacific Coast Distribution:
Nuka Bay, Kenai Peninsula, Alaska (Miller 5141 in UC) to Monterey Peninsula, Calif. (Smith 1944, p. 131); San Luis Obispo Co., Calif. (San Simeon to Shell Beach: Sparling 1977, p. 32); Channel Is., Calif. (Anacapa I., Santa Barbara I., Santa Catalina I.: Nicholson and Cimberg 1971, p. 377; San Pedro, Los Angeles Co., Calif.

Life History:
potential alternation of heteromorphic phases, with zoospores from unilocular sporangia on macroscopic sporophytes germinating to produce tufts of diffusely branched filaments bearing plurilocular organs, subcultures of which produced successive generations of presumed plethysmothalli bearing both unilocular and plurilocular organs; macroscopic sporophytes not obtained in culture (Wynne 1972a, p. 133) Display references
Phenology:
macroscopic plants produced at the same time (May) at all latitudes
