Thalli, approximately 2.5 cm tall, form tufts of interwoven filaments, which have the appearance
of a frayed rope at its tips (Fig. 13). Filaments are uniseriate and irregularly branched with numerous short hooked branches arising at an angle of 80-90°. Growth takes place by intercalary cell divisions. Cells are 25-33 μm wide, 60-80 μm long, L/B: 1-1.3. Plurilocular sporangia, placed on a 1-2-celled stalk, are spherical to ovoid and measure 40 x 42 (-63) μm on average (Ref. 82093). It is characterised by the shape of the plurilocular sporangia and
the presence of short hooked branches (Ref. 82093).
Thalli, approximately 2.5 cm tall (Ref. 82093). Growing in the intertidal, often attached to barnacles in wave-exposed localities (Ref. 82093).
