Halophila stipulacea, a Red Sea immigrant in the Mediterranean, has been found in 27 stations at Cyprus and three stations at Rhodes during 1967-1970. In Cyprus it has been dredged from depths ranging between 13 and 147 m, mostly from 30-45 m, but has not been found in shallower waters. In Rhodes, however, it was found in shallow waters, including a tidal pool at about mean sea level, as well as at the depth of 40-45 m. The locations in which the plant has been found seem to be concentrated in harbours or in the close vicinity of harbours. Flowers and fruits were found only in early September, a little later than the flowering season in the northern Red Sea.
