The species is densely branched and has a dark green colour

Thallus is uniseriate and densely branched, up to 15-20 cm high and with a relatively stiff structure. The species grows abundantly in the intertidal, and is easy to identify due to its dark, green colour. Cell walls are relatively thick. In older parts of the thallus an axial cell can produce several branches (often three to four). The branching angle is normally narrow, 20 degrees or less.
