Abstract

A new red algal species, Crassitegula laciniata (Sebdeniaceae, Sebdeniales), was described from recent collections made on offshore Bermuda reef habitats, and it was distinguished morphologically and molecularly (COI-5P, LSU gene sequences) from congeners in Bermuda and Australia. In addition, four other species were reported as new members of the growing Bermuda macroalgal flora: the chlorophytes Anadyomene lacerata and Codium carolinianum and the rhodophytes Gracilaria occidentalis and Predaea goffiana. © 2014 International Phycological Society.
