Common names

(as Cryptopleura ramosa (Hudson) L.Newton)
English: Fine-veined Crinkle Weed (Bunker et al. 2010).

Description
Thin, membranous, brownish red fronds, to 200 mm long. Frond ± dichotomously divided, becoming irregular in upper parts. Frond often iridescent, with undulate, often proliferous margins, sometimes with flattened hooks or with rhizoidal attachment processes. Very variable in growth form.

Habitat
On rock and Laminaria hyperborea stipes, lower intertidal and subtidal, generally distributed, common.

Key characteristics
Gonimophyllum buffhamii, a minute parasite, occurs occasionally on subtidal plants on southern and western coasts.

Similar species
Acrosorium venulosum is less translucent and recurved branches are not as strongly recurved.
