The species typically appears in dense patches in the intertidal

The species grows in the intertidal, and is most abundant during winter and early spring. It typically forms dense, dark red and felt-like patches where many individuals grow together. Each individual is unbranched and pluriseriate, and may reach 5-15 cm. The tip of the thallus and young individuals can be uniseriate. Little is known about the diploid Chonchocelis phase in nature.
