Hildenbrandia sp._4GWS (BC/A)

This genetic group has verified records from subtidal (10 m) habitat on cobble and rock from Haida Gwaii, BC, RI to NS in the NW Atlantic, and Norway (Featured Image). 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.
