Marchantiaceae are the representatives of radiate animals, another reason why Jungermanniaceae are to be separated from them.
Jungermanniaceae the plant is throughout foliose, and the archegonia occupy the ends of the main shoot or of its branches.
The Acrogynous Jungermanniaceae fall into a number of natural groups, which cannot, however, be followed out here.
Indications of how this may have come about are afforded by the lower group of the Anacrogynous Jungermanniaceae, and throughout the
Jungermanniaceae, in which the branch continues its growth after the formation of archegonia so that they (and later the sporogonia) stand on the dorsal surface of the thallus or leafy plant.
