Common names

(as Brongniartella byssoides (Goodenough & Woodward) F.Schmitz)
English: Bronginart's Thread Weed (Bunker et al. 2010).

Description
Soft, tufted, deep purplish red fronds, to 300 mm long. Main axis well-defined, bi- or tripinnate, bearing alternate, distichous branches. Branches and branchlets articulated, with central siphon and 5-7 pericentral siphons, clothed with short, slender, repeatedly dichotomously branched, monosiphonous ramuli. Procarps and cystocarps are single on the tricho­ blasts and the spermatangial branches are grouped together at the tips of short polysiphonous laterals. Tetrasporangia are formed in stichidia-like modifications of the main and lateral axes which carry 3-4 branched trichoblasts. The colour is a light red-brown to almost black when dry.

Habitat
On stones and shells and epiphytic, lower intertidal and subtidal, spring and summer, generally distributed, common in NE Atlantic.
