Authority: Britton, Nathaniel L. & Millspaugh, Charles F. 1920. The Bahama Flora.
Family:Liagoraceae
Description:Species Description - This species, also, as here conceived, shows great variation in size and habit, in the amount of calcification, and in the presence or absence of lateral proliferations, yet is fairly constant in the alveolate or farinaceous-pulverulent character of the surface of the dried plant, in the small subglobose or ovoid ultimate or penultimate cells of the assimilatory filaments, in the compact, many-filamented, small-spored cystocarp, and in the highly developed eystocarpic involucre of numerous long ascending or partly encircling filaments. Munosporangium-bearing discs, apparently arising from gemmae, are of frequent occurrence on both antheridial and cystoearpic plants.
