Best Answer

Unlike brown and green algae, red algae can assume a great variety of colors. Xanthophylls like lutein yield yellow to orange hues. More typically, however, red algae appear red, violet or bluish due to the presence of accessory pigments like phycoerythrin and phycocyanin. Green prevails when the above colorations are lacking. Overlaping colors or high concentrations of pigments can cause rhodophytes to look brown or blackish. Coralline rhodophytes often appear chalk white.
