Algae erect tufts, up to 5 cm tall, main axes pseudodichotomously to pseudotrichotomously branched, up to 3 orders; branchlets sometimes straight filaments, but usually clusters of short, secund or recurved branchlets, with relatively straight to curled apical cell ends; attached by branched rhizoids from basal end of lower cells, which may partly coalesce. Main filaments 140–260(–300) µm in diameter and (3–)4–8 times longer than wide; apical cells much smaller, (20–)30–50 µm in diameter and 2–6(–9) times longer than wide. Cell walls of upper cells mostly 1.0–2.0 µm thick; much thicker in lower cells, up to 20 µm thick.

HABITAT. On rocks, limestone-clay ledges, and mudflats and in tide pools, lagoons, and salt marshes; sometimes unattached and floating or may be epiphytic or entangled with other algae or aquatic plants; high to low intertidal.

DISTRIBUTION. Gulf of California: Piedras de La Salina to Puerto Peñasco. Pacific coast: Nayarit to Guerrero; Colombia; Hawaiian Islands; Japan; Korea; China; Vietnam.

TYPE LOCALITY. Selsey, Sussex, England (lectotype; van den Hoek, 1963).
