Green algae division

Green algae division

The green algae division is the largest, insofar as number of species is concerned. It includes 500 genera and 8,000 species: single cell, multi-cell and sometimes multi-nuclear.

Key to species of the Chlorophyta

Key to species of the Chlorophyta

Fillamentous algae less than 1 mm thick. A microscope is required to identify various species.

Acetabularia Lamouroux

Acetabularia Lamouroux

The alga resembles an umbrella or a small mushroom. A central axis and an umbel or disk are evident at the top. The top is made of a number of rays,

Anadyomene stellata

Anadyomene stellata

A flattened alga that resembles a green fleshy ‘leaf’. It is thicker and harder than the ‘leaf’ of an Ulva and easier to break than to fold. The edge of the thallus is somewhat curled upwards. The gen

Boodleopsis pusilla

Boodleopsis pusilla

The alga resembles a bundle of thin, green strands. A microscope is required to identify the genus and its species, at which point the dichotomous (two-horned) branching that characterizes the Boodleo

Bryopsis plumosa

Bryopsis plumosa

The algal branches are green and very soft, and they gently sway with the water current. When the thallus unfurls in the water, the algal structure is revealed

Caulerpa mexicana Sonder and  Kutzing

Caulerpa mexicana Sonder and Kutzing

The Caulerpa mexicana resembles the Caulerpa scalpelliformis but is more delicate. The indentations between the lobes are deeper and create the appearance of a compound leaf.

Caulerpa prolifera

Caulerpa prolifera

The thallus is flat and has no indentations, as do other Caulerpa species in this region. The Caulerpa prolifera’s branches resemble an elongated ‘leaf’ whose sides and edge are rounded.

Caulerpa racemosa

Caulerpa racemosa

The Caulerpa racemosa resembles a bunch of small green grapes. The ‘stalk’ is horizontal, and sprouts erect branches, upon which short branches hold globular, sometimes slightly elongated ‘leaves’.

Caulerpa scalpelliformis

Caulerpa scalpelliformis

The Caulerpa scalpelliformis thallus resembles flat, emarginate ‘leaves’ that are uniformly separated by indentations into lobes. The indentation depth reaches a third of the thallus width.

Chaetomorpha aerea  Kutzing

Chaetomorpha aerea Kutzing

The Chaetomorpha resembles a cluster of green filaments. A microscope is needed to identify the genus and the species. The Chaetomorpha has one long row of cells, but no secondary branching, unlike th

Cladophora  Kutzing

Cladophora Kutzing

A green, filamentous alga, its filament is comprised of one row of cells. Through a microscope, branch-like divisions are evident the entire length of the filament. The branching points in the same di

Cladophora pseudopellucida van den Hoek

Cladophora pseudopellucida van den Hoek

The Cladophora pseudopellucida resembles a small, dark green bush. Its branches are multi-branched, either dichotomously or trichotomously.

Cladophoropsis membranacea

Cladophoropsis membranacea

The Cladophoropsis resembles light green, compact cushions and is common in the wave-breaking region. The cushions are made of a dense mass of thin, branched ‘stalks’.

Codium decorticatum (Woodward) Howe

Codium decorticatum (Woodward) Howe

The Codium decorticatum resembles the Codium vermilara but is structurally more delicate. Its dichotomous branches are thin and cylindrical;
