Weisnerellaceae Dumortiera hirsuta is a large thallose liverwort that grows in humid sites, often close to water. Antheridiophores with disk-shaped receptacle, with small ventral scales underneath and bristles on margins and dorsal side, stalk short, without assimilatory strip, with 2 rhizoid furrows; rarely, antheridial branches develop in the female receptacles.
