Commonly known as the snake liverwort, this is the largest of the thalloid liverworts. Thallus pale to dark green, dichotomously branching. The dorsal surface of C. conicum is covered with tiny hexagons, which makes the entire thallus seem snake-like. In the center of each hexagon is a pore.

Can be found on moist rocks and wet inorganic soils.
