Distribution Long Island Sound to Strait of Belle Isle [details]

Habitat epiphytic on Pulmaria and other algae in tide pools and the shallow sublittoral [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]
