lateral branches, especially in the younger parts, often spreading;
cells varied and irregular in form, in surface view mostly oblong,
quadrate, ovate, or fiddle shaped, often curved, forked, or
irregularly one or two lobed, 8 to 25 mic. long, 3 to 12 mic.
broad; male and female organs borne on the same individual;
Spermatia ovoid, 2 to 4 mic. in diameter, more or less exserted by
slender stalks about 1 mic. broad; carpogonium furnished with a
beak or trichogyne exserted about 4 to 8 mic.; sporocarp forming a
single carpospore (or, rarely, two), these ovoid, oblong, or
irregular, mostly 8 to 19 mic. in maximum diameter; nonsexual
spores unknown. Endemic. Fairly abundant in the superficial cell
walls of Dictyota dichotoma growing in the harbor, Beaufort, N. C,
especially on Fort Macon jetties, summer and autumn; on Dictyota
and other algae and in the stolons of hydroids growing on these,
dredged from the coral reef offshore, Beaufort, N. C, August, 1914.
This alga is entirely invisible to the naked eye and will not be
seen even under the microscope unless a careful search is made.
When seen, it appears as a more or less definite mass of clear,
minute filaments closely adherent to the surface of the host. Its
color is scarcely distinguishable, it apparently being so neutral
in this respect as to show the color of the host. It can be made
clearly evident by staining with iodine dissolved in potassium
iodide. It will not be confused with any other species found in the
harbor. It is unknown outside of this region. 3. Erythrocladia
