Comprehensive Description

Halodule wrightii is a "seagrass" that may form carpet-like beds in warm, shallow waters from the southeastern United States to South America (seagrasses superficially resemble grasses, but are not technically grasses since they are not in the family Poaceae) (Haynes 2000).
