Cladophora rupestris

This species is a branched green seaweed and is very common and widespread in the British Isles. It is said to be one of the more easily recognizable members of the genus. Just to be sure I used the book.

Origin October 2013
Wonderful segmented structure
A failed link - I have left it to show anyone who comes what sometimes (too often) happens. is very close to the original but has no
biologie.uni-hamburg in it - have they lost the department?

PS. I have now made my second post after some exhausting study!
The new book has only three Cladophorae of which this and C.sericea are the only UK reps.
