A native plant cell (PO:0025606) that develops from a cell in a protonema (PO:0030003) and has a thick cell wall.
Found in mosses. A brachycyte is a drought tolerant cell that can act as a gemma (PO:0025614) and may give rise to a new plant. Cells of a protonema (PO:0030003) may develop into brachycytes under stress. May form a chain or be separated by tmema cells (PO:0030059).
