Balanus crenatus and/or Pomatoceros triqueter with spirorbid worms and coralline crusts on severely scoured infralittoral rock (No description at this level)
|Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06
|Walls, or massive boulders, in caves or gullies that are subject to severe wave-surge may be characterised by extensive thin crusts of Halichondria panicea with smaller patches of other sponges including Clathrina coriacea and Leuconia nivea. Small turfs of robust hydroids such as Diphasia rosacea and Ventromma halecioides and patches of Balanus crenatus and coralline crusts may be present. This biotope is subject to a greater degree of wave surge and scour than either of sponge crust and ascidian biotopes (EIR.SCAs), or the sponge crust and anemone-dominated biotopes (EIR.SCAn).
