This is a red seaweed that grows in the intertidal zone.
It can be found on the rocks and in the intertidal pools, mostly covered by other seaweeds.
The thallus is conspicuously constricted giving a segmented appearance.
At each constriction an new branche grow out, and this branche becomes smaller near the top.
The plant is very shiny and the tips of branches may be bleached pink or orange.
