Overview:

Mutimo cylindricus is a brown seaweed. Its native range extends from northern Japan to the Philippines spanning cold-temperate to warm-temperate climates. In 1973, it was found growing in shallow water on Santa Catalina Island, California. Its non-native range currently extends from the Channel Islands to Las Gaviotas, Baja California, Mexico. It is known from shallow water on rocky open-coasts, but recent work reports occurrences in gravelly soft sediment habitats. No economic or ecological impacts are known for this species.
