Detailed study of the ultrastructure of three members of the Tetrasporaceae, Paulschulzia pseudovolvox, Schizochlamys gelatinosa, and Tetraspora gelatinosa, has revealed, for the first time, that the pseudocilia of two of the genera possess a 9+0 fibrillar structural arrangement. Schizochlamys gelatinosa was found to lack thylakoids traversing the pyrenoid. The pyrenoids of the other two genera were found to resemble more closely those described for other green algae.
