Alcyonium digitatum and a bryozoan, hydroid and ascidian turf on moderately exposed vertical infralittoral rock
|Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06
|Vertical, shaded surfaces in the infralittoral zone tend to lack dense kelp and other red seaweeds and are instead dominated by Alcyonium digitatum with a turf of bryozoans such as Bugula flabellata and hydroids including Kirchenpaueria pinnata. Beneath this turf the rock is generally encrusted by coralline algae, encrusting bryozoans and Pomatoceros triqueter. Ascidians such as Botryllus schlosseri, Clavelina lepadiformis and Ciona intestinalis are also common. This biotope has a wide species composition, and warrants further data analysis.
