General environment
This is a marine species.

Description
Plants exclusively subtidal, commonly epizoic on polychaete worm tubes. Thalli highly branched; overlapping branches frequently fuse together. Branches are a consistent width throughout individuals, 1.1–2.8 mm wide near base, penultimate branches 0.5–2.4 mm wide. Branch apices blunt. Thalli 170–205 µm thick. Medulla of large, unpigmented, oval to isodiametric cells (55–95 µm). Small unpigmented cells between large cells present, but typically cryptic, most abundant in basal regions.

Type information
Type locality: Wizard Islets (Lat: 48.85838°N, Long: 125.15888°W), Bamfield, British Columbia, Canada. (Clarkston & Saunders 2010: 121). Holotype: B.E. Clarkston & S. Toews; 3 June 2008; subtidal at 40 ft. on worm tube. NBW GWS010572 (Clarkston & Saunders 2010: 121).
