The species is tolerant to dry conditions during low tide and grows usually on hard rock in a zone between Fucus vesiculosus and Pelvetia canaliculata. The fronds can be up to 30-40 cm tall and has a prominent midrib but no air-vesicles. The fronds show an irregular dichotomous branching-pattern and are often spirally twisted.
