The facies characterised by the seagrass Halophila stipulacea lives on soft bottoms with fine sands that are fairly enriched by fine particles. Colonies of Halophila stipulacea have invaded the Mediterranean as a result of the opening of the Suez Canal; they have been reported from continental Greece, the Cyclades, Crete, Rhodes, Samos, the Maltese Islands.
