Red Algae, Rhodophyceae 1
Description:

This algae is composed of masses of purple threads rather than any sort of leaf pattern. I would like help identifying it. I had believed that red algae was usually to be found on the lower shore, but you can see from the 'context' image that it is towards the upper end of the tidal zone on sea defence wall.
