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