Encrusting Red algae

For most of us, the encrusting coralline species are difficult to distinguish and few surveys record to species level. They are red algae and often called Lithothamnium - "rock thallus", though detailed study has produced several genera, such as Lithophyllum and Phymatolithon, and many species.

p.s "seaweeds" generally refers to marine algae, especially the macroscopic ones.
