Cyanophyta Lyngbya majuscula (Dillw.) Harv. Kuetz. In her letter Dr. Koster comments: "" ... a variable species with 16-60? thick trichomes, which are blue-green, brownish-green or greyish-violet. It is a common tropical species"". This is certainly a common species along the whole length of the. Kenya coast. In places it is prominent both on account of the length of the filaments which may be 14 cms. or more and because of the abundance of such clumps as off shore at Majunguni, Pate Island where it occurred as an epiphyte on stumps and leaves of Cymodocea ciliata.
