Main identification characters
Data exist in different language. Feel free to update this datasheet and translate the data :
Il s'agit de plantes très dures aux tiges cylindriques rugueuses, d'où partent des expansions en forme de calices pyramydaux. Les bordures des calices sont hérissées d'épines qui piquent lorsqu'on les effleure.

Cette algue brune peut atteindre la longueur du bras, elle est abondante sur tous les récifs frangeants et barrières relativement bien battus par la houle mais ne semble pas exister sur les atolls.

Le pédicule qui la fixe au platier résiste bien aux assauts de la mer.
