From other sources
Diet photosynthetic [details]

Distribution Long Island Sound to Scotian coast [details]

Habitat warm bays and estuaries, usually in the shallow sublittoral to 12 m [details]

Morphology Red colour results from the dominance of the pigments phycoerythrin and phycocyanin; this masks the other pigments, chlorophyll a (no chlorophyll b), beta-caratene and a number of unique xanthophylls. [details]

Reproduction vegetative reproduction is rare; asexual reproduction is effected by the formation of various kinds of spores; Sexual reproduction is unique in this group due to their passive, non flagellated sperm cells (spermatia) [details]
