If you’d like a challenge, try identifying this species of alga (I wasn’t able to do it with an hour of searching, but then again, I’m not a phycologist!).

    Just as a guess, I’d say it’s an Ulva species.

    I asked a friend who is quite good at seaweed identification and she suggested Mazzaella cornucopiae. Here is a link to a couple more photos:
