Living Material

This species grows in the form of upright, white, bushy tufts, 8 to 25 mm. high. The tube-like zooecia are arranged in two alternate rows. There is some question as to whether the species is dioecious or monoecious and protandrous. The conspicuous ovicells make the fertile "female" colonies easy to recognize. The form is common at Woods Hole, Mass.
