Taxonomic notes
The only apparent difference between B. clavata and B. asparagoides is that it is dioecious whilst the the latter is monoecious. As B. asparagoides has a direct life history, I speculate that the situation is the same as in Mastocarpus stellatus: entities that are monoecious have a direct life history with no tetrasporophyte; entites that are dioecious have a heteromorphic tetrasporophyte. In that instance the two are likely to be part of the same species.

General environment
This is a marine species.

Description
Gametophyte with feathery fronds, much branched, to 250 mm long, main axis cylindrical or slightly compressed, to 3 mm wide, from small discoid base. Branches alternate, distichous, covered with alternating, spinelike corticated ramuli about 2 mm long in one plane. Tetrasporophyte (Hymenoclonium-phase) a minute prostrate disc 2-4 mm diam.

Habitat
The gametophytes are summer annuals (May-September) found on rock, very low intertidal or subtidal (to 30 m), widely distributed, frequent. Sporophyte subtidal, on shells, stones, etc., very rare.

Key characteristics
Short, almost spiny branchlets in two rows; specimens also degenerate quick unless kept in water and in a cool place.

Similar species
B. hamifera is less common and more seasonal (March to June, inclusive, and has distinctive and unique crozier-shaped modified branches that hook on to other algae; Naccaria wiggii is even less common and has branchlet that grow radially on the axes.
