There is a good chance that this IS U.lactuca but it is simply not possible to tell without close examination (supporting photos), probably with a microscope
See - http://www.discoverlife.org/mp/20q?search=Ulva+lactuca BUT what a pity there are no side b sides of other Ulvae sowe can see clearly what differences!
