General environment
This is a marine species.

Between tide marks at high tide growing on Bryozoa, Balanus or on various algae (Nakamura 1965). Growing on a wide variety of substrata, including bedrock and pebbles, large and small algae, maerl, ascidians, hydroids and dead shells, from extreme low water to 26 m depth, found at greater depths on exposed shores than at sheltered sites, particularly common from 3-10 m depth at sites sheltered from wave action with slight to strong tidal currents, such as in Scottish sealochs (Maggs & Hommersand 1993: 51).
