I found out today that there is a native oxalis so I am guessing this is the species.

Description

Total guess and do not have a clue what this is. First photo shows what it looked like when spotted in a rock pool, mid intertidal zone, northern side of Lion Rock and the other photos are taken with the underwater camera to try and work out what it is. As I have never seen green alga growing in this section of the intertidal before I thought it may be a polycheate or sponge at first, but the closeups and faded green (as seen in the closeups) and the white could be bleached.

This is the common species of Ulva found in NZ, identifiable by the teeth on the edge of the leaf which I have finally managed to photograph. If you ever find ulva without the teeth it would be U. pertusa (NZ seaweeds Pg 41) so I will have to take a close look at all ulva I photograph from here on out *LOL*
