Acanthopeltis hirsuta(ヤタベグサ)

Field survey was conducted in Miyazaki Prefecture yesterday to observe an endemic alga, Acanthopeltis hirsuta (Gelidiales). This species has been confirmed only from the coast of Miyazaki Prefecture except for some sites in Oita Prefecture.

It is growing at 4m deep at offshore of Aoshima rocky shore. Wave looks calm yesterday, but the current was so strong.
