Some organisms, such as many algae of the genera Caulerpa, Dasycladus, Halimeda and Penicillus
withstand or are especially adapted to environments with high rates of sedimentation.
Rhizophytes such as Avrainvillea, Halimeda, Penicillus
, Rhipocephalus, Udotea, Cladocephalus, and Caulerpa (Chlorophyta, Bryopsidales) are among the predominant contributors to macroalgal cover and primary productivity within the vast seagrass flats throughout the tropical western Atlantic.
118)) Lest all of this sounds more like an erotic fantasy of a randy Aretino than real scholarship, let me point out that Cicero's etymology of penicillus
, the Latin root for pennello according to the Accademia della Crusca, was exactly the same as Aretino's.
There is also significant abundance of some macroalgae species, mainly of the genera Dictyota, Penicillus
and Ceramium (Alcolado 1976).

The siphonaceous green alga Penicillus
capitatus Lamarck is a common macroalga of the Carribean and Gulf of Mexico (Littler & Littler 2000).

Por ejemplo, la mayoria de las algas verdes de los planos arenosos o de la laguna son sifonaceas psamofilicas, las cuales presentan una base estolonifera como Caulerpa o una masa rizoidal empotrada en la arena como Udotea, Penicillus

Sorensen (1970) reported the extirpation of Penicillus
capitatus from the LLM following an extended period of low salinity.
