Caulerpa cylindracea Sonder, 1845
The green macroalgae is considered an invasive species native from Australia that has rapidly spread across the Mediterranean since 1926. It colonises a variety of substrata, and its dominating presence has been found to alter indigenous flora and fauna biodiversity. This algal species has been a key invasive species in the NE Mediterranean and appeared in the Aegean Sea since late 1990’s.
