Taxonomic notes
Bartsh & Kuhlenkamp (2000) comment: "The recently described species U. tenera, which has only been recorded from Helgoland and Sylt (Kornmann and Sahling 1994), is an unusual form of Ulva, growing in the upper eulittoral and propagating with zoospores with only two flagella. Its relationship to U. linearis from Morocco (Dangeard 1957) and U. neapolitana from the Mediterranean (Bliding 1960, 1968) remains to be elucidated (Kornmann and Sahling 1994). The Type of U. tenera is present at the Marine Biological Station on Helgoland" - (12 May 2015) - M.D. Guiry
