The rhololith bed off Western Port, Victoria, for example, is composed of four species (Hydrolithon rupestre (Foslie) Penrose, Lithothamnion superpositum Foslie, Mesophyllum engelhartii (Foslie) Adey, and Neogoniolithon brassica-florida (Harvey) Setchell and Mason) [37] so it is likely that the Kimberley rhodolith beds also contains multiple species.
The studied assemblages are dominated by seaweed, mainly the articulated red algae Corallina elongata, some encrusting coralline algae such as those of the genera Lithophyllum and Mesophyllum, and some frondose brown and red algae such as Cystoseira sp., Halopteris scoparia, Padina pavonica, Sphacelaria sp., Colpomenia sinuosa, and Asparagopsis armata.

The Presence of Red Algae (Lithophylum, Mesophyllum, Sporolithonn, and Lithothamnium) also represents tropical climate (Bosence, 1983).
In the northwest Mediterranean, thick layers of encrusting coralline algae give rise to a most peculiar community: coralligen covered by sciaphilic seaweeds (Mesophyllum, Halimeda, Peyssonnelia) in the upper circumlittoral level, while in the lower circumlittoral level it is dominated by populations of suspensivores (gorgonians such as Paramuricia and Eunicella, red coral, and sponges).
