  In the life cycle of Hh type of algae, the free living thallus is haploid (1N) and only one form. The algae can mutiply by fragmentation or cell divisions, or by producing spores for asexual reproduction. They can also perform sexual reproduction by producing gametes. After fertilization, the zygote undergoes meiosis to generate four spores. Each spore will then geminate into a haploid thallus. Examples include Bangia atropurpurea and Monostroma nitidum.
