This seaweed forms a soft short turf, up to 1 cm in height. The non-branching plants consist of bright green, thin fibres that are a series of cylindrical cells which are 90-120 µm in length and 30-60 µm in diameter. This seaweed grows on rocks in subtidal zones or in tidal pools along moderately wave exposed shorelines.
