Taxonomic notes
Kang et al. (2014) note that several Ulva spp. phylogenetic studies regard U. procera as a separate species from U. linza (Heesch et al. 2009, Saunders and Kucera 2010, Kirkendale et al. 2013). According to Brodie et al. (2007: 96), ITS sequence data have demonstrated that U. procera is conspecific with typical U. linza. - (29 Jan 2015) - Wendy Guiry

Habitat notes
Intertidal zone (Selivanova & Zhigadlova 2009). - (10 May 2010) - Wendy Guiry
