dulse

dulse The common name for the red seaweed Palmaria palmata (formerly Rhodymenia palmata). The thallus is flattened and usually dichotomously branched. It grows in the intertidal zone and at low-water mark, attached to rocks or to other seaweeds by a discoid holdfast. It has been used widely as food, although it is reputed to be tough and somewhat flavourless. See also PEPPER DULSE.
