Hildenbrandia sp._8GWS (A)

This genetic group has only seven verified records from the mid intertidal to subtidal (6 m) habitat in the Bay of Fundy, NB, and ME. 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.
