(as Cystoseira baccata (S.G.Gmelin) P.C.Silva)
English: Bushy Berry Wrack (Bunker et al. 2010).
Plants usually solitary, 1 m or more in length, attached by a thick, conical attaching disc. Axis simple or branched, up to 1 m in length, flattened, about 1 x 0.4 cm in transverse section; apex smooth and surrounded during periods of active growth by incurred young laterals. Lateral branch systems distichous, alternate, radially symmetrical, profusely branched in a repeatedly pinnate fashion and bearing sparse, filiform, occasionally bifurcate appendages on the branches of higher orders; deciduous, leaving decurrent bases which give an irregular, zigzag outline to the axis. Cryptostomata lacking. Aerocysts present in axes of branches of higher order, sometimes in chains; seasonal, particularly numerous in autumn. Receptacles 1-5 cm long, formed from axes of ultimate ramuli, irregularly nodose and bearing simple, filiform appendages.
