Description

Ulva species 1 as seen in NZ Seaweeds Pg 44 because of the teeth that can be seen.

I am wondering @clinton if we could have Ulva Species 1 added (similar to the blue blottles) so any obs with these teeth can be put into that? May help when it is described? :D

I thought this may be Thysanozoon cruciatum because of the "cross" on its back (according to Cook, Pg 273) but that came up as a sub species, so that is why I am starting with this one.

the last photo shows how I first saw it when I turned the rock over, and then the "dot" stretched out and crawled. I could not see the detail until I got the photos on the pc.
