Chondria dasyphylla

The branchlets of this Rhodophyte are more club shaped that cigar shaped. Here we see thalli from two differrent parts of this organism's life cycle. The spots on the thallus with somewhat deformed looking branchletts are tetraspores. The other bears urn-shaped pericarps which contain developing carposporophytes.
