Stolonica socialis and/or Polyclinum aurantium with Flustra foliacea on slightly sand-scoured tide-swept moderately exposed circalittoral rock
|Within Vocab||Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06|
|Definition||Polyclinum aurantium and/or Stolonica socialis on silty, slightly sand-scoured, tide-swept rock with a turf of bryozoans such as Flustra foliacea and Chartella. There are several ascidian-dominated biotopes with Flustra - North Wales/Irish Sea variants with Sabellaria spinulosa or branching sponges and this more northern Irish Sea/Flamborough variant with generally fewer species. Some examples from Ireland include Synoicum incrustatum and Polycarpa scuba. Moderately strong tides also encourage tufts of Tubularia. Other ascidians such as Pycnoclavella aurilucens common in some areas. Hydroids often abundant in the strong / moderately strong tidal streams.|
