Diet photosynthetic [details]

Distribution Hudson Strait to Connecticut [details]

Habitat tide pools or from low littoral to 10 m or more [details]

Morphology Brown colour results from the dominance of the xanthophyll fucoxanthin; this masks the other pigments, Chlorophyll a and c (no chlorophyll b), beta-carotene and other xanthophylls. [details]

Reproduction general for group: most brown algae have an alternation of haploid and dioploid generations; The haploid thalli form isogamous, anisogamous or oogamous gametes and the diploid thalli form zoospores by meiosis. [details]
