This species is similar to Ch. ligustica however the plants are slightly harder to the touch and the cells are bigger at 90-100 µm in length and 90-100 µm in width with 50-70 nuclei. The plants drift on the bottom or become entangled with other seaweeds in very calm areas such as brackish water aquaculture ponds or canals.
