Hildenbrandia sp._11GWS (BC/A)

This genetic group has 11 (as of July 2018) verified records from upper intertidal pools to subtidal (12 m) habitat distributed in BC and from RI to NB in the NW Atlantic. The genus Hildenbrandia has 36 (and counting) genetic species in the Canadian flora rather than the three or four listed (Gabrielson & Lindstrom; Sears 2002). Considerable taxonomic work remains.
