- carina vexillo et alis plus dimidio brevior, the keel shorter than the vexillum and wings by half.

- antherarum calcare longiore loculum dimidio superante (Mueller), with the spur of the anthers longer, overtopping the locule by a half [i.e. by 50 percent].

- [algae] articuli fere omnes aequali longitudine, diametro multo breviores apparent et in tenuiore parte dimidio breviores (Agardh), nearly all the the articuli with an equal length, they appear much shorter in diameter and in the thinner part shorter by half.

- [algae] cellulae admodum laxae, prismatico-polyedrae, dimidio longiores quam crassae non in eodem plano disposilae, centrum occupant (Agardh), cells extremely lax, prismatic-polyhedrous, longer than thick by a half, not arranged in the same plane, occupying the center.
