Abstract: Coilodesme japonica – a brown temperate algal species grows epiphytically on three marine algal host species namely Cystosiera hakodatensis, Sargassum confusum and Dictyopteris divaricata. The distribution pattern, phenology and host-specificity in the field was studied. Out of the 3 hosts, C. hakodatensis was most favoured host by C. japonica (100% by May) followed by S. confusum. The least favourite host was D. divaricata (only 5% were epiphytized). The rhizoidal portion was less epiphytized in both the cases. Maximum number of C. japonica thalli and biomass were found on the size class 3 and 4. Host surface, age and biochemistry play important role in the C. japonica distribution and biomass colonization.
