Abstract

"Transfer connections" are morphologically and developmentally distinct pit connections in Polysiphonia (Ceramiales). They are intracellular rather than extracellular and have been observed between all cells of the diploid carposporophyte plus those specialized cells of the gametophyte suspected of providing nutritive materials to it.
