Turbinaria foliosa sp. nov. (Fucales, Phaeophyceae) from the Sultanate of Oman, with a census of currently recognized species in the genus Turbinaria SUMMARY Turbinaria foliosa sp. nov. is described on the basis of several collections made from Dhofar, Sultanate of Oman. The new species is known only from southern Oman, a region of the northern Arabian Sea(More)
The genus Caulerpa is known for its invasion of tropical, subtropical, and temperate coastal waters. Whereas the role of humans as vectors for the introduction of Caulerpa has been well documented, other anthropogenic factors that may mediate the success of an invasion are poorly understood. We provide evidence that a recent invasion of Caulerpa ollivieri(More)
A number of original watercolored illustrations of North Pacific marine algae accompanied by the original algal specimens are deposited in the State Botanical Collection, National Herbarium of Victoria, Australia. These illustrations were executed by W.G. Tilesius, surgeon-naturalist-artist on the Krusenstern Expedition (1803–06). One of these illustrated(More)

A new species of red algae, Plocamium fimbriatum, is described from the Sultanate of Oman. It is distinguished by the following suite of characteristics: robust main axes (to 25 cm in length by 4-6 mm in width) with marginal branches produced in series of alternating pairs; production of abundant marginal proliferations resulting in a densely fringed(More)
Specimens of Palisada iridescens (Rhodomelaceae) were studied morphologically and molecularly from the Mexican Caribbean. The phylogenetic position of this species was inferred by analysis of chloroplast-encoded rbcL gene sequences of 42 taxa, using one ceramiacean and four rhodomelacean taxa as outgroups. Molecular phylogenetic results corroborate the(More)
The type specimen of the red alga Alysium holtingii C. Agardh, described from Brazil, is located in the Lund Herbarium, and it is depicted for the first time in a publication. It is taxonomically identical to Dichotomaria obtusata (J. Ellis and Solander) Lamarck and thus can be treated as a later taxonomic synonym. Alysium is regarded as congeneric with(More)

(Rhodymeniales, Rhodophyta) from the Sultanate of Oman, with a census of currently recognized species in the genus Chrysymenia SUMMARY Chrysymenia tigillis sp. nov. is described on the basis of a few specimens collected from Dhofar, Sultanate of Oman. The new species is known only from southern Oman, a region of the northern(More)
