Webster, another species in which the fronds are made up of calcified segments. It is found on wave exposed shores, usually as an epiphyte on Cystoseira (p. 66), and is restricted to south and west coasts of Britain. 15 Jania rubens on Cladostephus spongiosus (detail of frond after Irvine & Chamberlain, 1994). Lithophyllum incrustans Philippi Plate 2a Thallus in the form of a hard, smooth, calcareous patch; chalky texture when dry; encrusting rock surfaces, shells and sometimes seaweed.
Grows in irregular patches up to 1 m across; surface smooth or ridged, dark green in colour. Utricles terminate in flat apex with rounded edges. C. adhaerens has been recorded from the south coasts of England and Ireland, extending as far south as Spain. It is found from the lower shore into the sublittoral and is tolerant of a wide range of exposure to wave action. It appears to thrive in areas where there is strong current flow.
