Taxonomic notes
Ulva stenophylla (Kirkendale et al. 2013: table 1; also see Kraft et al. 2010). - (15 May 2013) - Wendy Guiry

Distributional notes
Probable adventive species found on southern Australian coasts (Womersley 2003: 499). - (18 Feb 2009) - Wendy Guiry

Results of studies carried out by O'Kelly et al. (2010) suggest that Ulva populations in tropical and subtropical regions consist of species that are largely unique to these areas, for which the application of names based on types from temperate and boreal European and North American waters is inappropriate. - (1 Sep 2010) - Wendy Guiry

General environment
This is a marine species.
