What is Red Algae? (“The Sciencey Bit”)
Trentepohlia is actually a green algae. Free-living species are mostly yellow to bright orange or red-brown in colour, due to the orange pigment, which usually hides the green of the chlorophyll.
Western Ireland is a cold temperate area with high levels of rainfall and humidity. This area including Donegal therefore supports a high level of rich and diversified algal flora. Trentepholia have been identified as one of the most common species to be isolated from walls and buildings in this region.
