Hepatophyta are nonvascular plants that are part of the kingdom Plantae. These types of plants are usually found in damp locations with a moderate amount of shade. Hepatophyta reproduces asexually and contains unicellular and multicellular gametes. Essentially, Hepatophyta is liverworts such as Marchantia. They are described as “thalloid” because of the flattened shape of their gametophytes. Also, some of the gametophytes have stem like structures with many leaf like appendages.
