This species is small (4-5 mm high), heavily calcified, and forms intricately entwined clumps. The branches are pinkish-red color, regularly dichotomous, terete or slightly compressed, and slightly curve downward. Terminal segments are acuminate. This is an epiphytic species, decumbent on other seaweeds such as the species of Sargassaceae, growing in the subtidal zones along shorelines moderately exposed to water movement.
