Long receptacles coiled in the intertidal zone

The species grows in the intertidal and is common on wave┬ľexposed shores in most parts of Norway (except the inner Skagerrak region and the northernmost part of Norway). It normally has a biennial life-cycle. The small, disc-like vegetative thallus produces up to 2 m long receptacles during spring and early summer, which are shed in the autumn.
