The species grows on rocks and small stones in the littoral zone, and tolerates a wide range of salinities.

Thallus is normally small and narrow (up to 2 mm wide) and unbranched, but can become bigger and branched at eutrophicated sites with freshwater influence. Tubes arise in groups from a discoid holdfast. Compared to Ulva intestinales the cells of this species are normally much smaller (diameter 5-10 micrometers compared to U. intestinalis 8-20 micrometers). The chloroplast, with one central pyrenoid, fills the whole cell in a surface view. Cells can be arranged in rows in the basal and most narrow part of a tube, but not in the distal part.
