Shrubby microbial structures known as dendrolites are common in the rock record but rare in modern environments. This paper describes living dendrolites that were recently discovered in low energy intertidal settings in Hamelin Pool, Shark Bay. Thick filaments of Lyngbya aestuarii form the “trunks” of the dendrolitic shrubs, with finer filaments of Lyngbya fragilis, Phormidium sp., and Schizothrix sp. forming the “branches.” These modern structures provide insight into our understanding of dendrolite formation throughout the rock record.
