provided by wikipedia EN

Dictyosphaeriaceae is a family of green algae. It can reproduce either asexually by use of an autospore, or sexually by fertilization of an egg by sperm. It forms colonies which have a gelatinous coating. The four (or more?) daughter cells connect via filaments derived from the cell wall of the mother cell. The cell body is elliptical, spherical, or heart shaped. It has a single chloroplast which is plate-like or cup-shaped and contains a pyrenoid.
