Diet photosynthetic [details]

Dimensions tufts to 2 cm high [details]

Distribution Long Island Sound, Gulf of Maine to Scotian coast, Gulf of St. Lawrence to Newfoundland [details]

Habitat tide pools or shallow sublittoral on shells, stones or coarse algae [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]
