''Pelvetia canaliculata'', the channelled wrack, is a very common brown alga found on the rocks of the upper shores of Europe. It is the only species remaining in the monotypic genus ''Pelvetia''. In 1999, the other members of this genus were reclassified as ''Silvetia'' due to differences of oogonium structure and of nucleic acid sequences of the rDNA.
