Halophila stipulacea (Forsskål) Ascherson, 1867
A tropical subtidal seagrass that is widely distributed along the coasts of the western Indian Ocean and Red Sea, and forms mono- or poly-specific meadows along the shore line. This species invaded the Mediterranean probably from the Red Sea through the Suez Canal, and it has been known to occur in the Mediterranean basin since 1895.
