Notes:

Hi, all. I found this attached to rocks at low tide on the north shore of Long Island, NY. I’m not certain that all the pictures are of the same species, though they seem to be. I was hoping it was Irish Moss, but it doesn’t seem a perfect match from my sources.

    I’m not a seaweed expert, but check out rockweed species (Fucus). According to the link below there are several species grow in Long Island, NY. Scroll down to page 37 for more information. Best wishes! http://digitalcommons.conncoll.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1039&context=arbbulletins
