Fucus distichus subsp. anceps and Fucus spiralis f. nana on extremely exposed upper eulittoral rock
|Within Vocab||Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06|
|Definition||Extremely exposed gently or steeply sloping upper shore bedrock may support a mixture of Fucus distichus and Fucus spiralis f. nana, the latter often at the top of the zone. This biotope is rare and restricted to the far north and west coasts. This mixed band is generally found between the Verrucaria maura and Porphyra zone (Ver.Por) above, and the Mytilus edulis and barnacle zone below (MytB). Although it may occur above a red algal zone (Mas), as recorded on Barra or above a Porphyra and sparse barnacle zone (Ver.Por) as on St Kilda.|
