It is 10 centimetres (3.9 in) in length with rounded edges that are 9–16 micrometres (0.00035–0.00063 in) long and are 7–12 micrometres (0.00028–0.00047 in) wide. Its base is made up of 2 lines of cells which are 50 centimetres (20 in) in length. Its sides are 34–39 micrometres (0.0013–0.0015 in) while the bottom is 38–50 micrometres (0.0015–0.0020 in).
Its methanol extract is used to cure Alzheimer's disease while its ethanol have polysaccharides which contains 23.04-35.20% of sulfate ester with 10.82-14.91% of uronic acid, and 3.82-451% of protein. It also produces crude enzyme when its mixed with linoleic acid which is widely used to fight influenza.
