    Daniel Heald says

    A brown algae with a highly unusual net-like morphology. Found in warm and temperate seas worldwide, but this was the first time I've ever seen anything like it. Brought in to the WA Naturalist's Club meeting by one of the members, to compliment the talk on Marine Plants I was giving.
