This is a marine species.

Habitat
Womersley & Johansen in Womersely (1996: 286) note that while common in warmer waters, this species extends along the southern Australian coast but has not been recorded from Tasmania; broader branched specimens appear to occur in deeper water (or shaded) habitats in Western Australia, with narrow ones in shallow water.
