Merman's Shaving Brush

Penicillus lamourouxii

Description:

Bushy green algae that looked like it had a short stalk, but it was difficult to see. They swayed and bounced around with the water. Very plentiful in this location.

Habitat:

At the edge of the water near mangroves and oyster reefs. The water was either salt or brackish. Growing alongside Green Feather Algae (https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/89...) and Mermaid's Wineglass (https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/19...)
