Morphometric and molecular analyses confirm two distinct species of Calliarthron (Corallinales, Rhodophyta), a genus endemic to the northeast Pacific
TLDR
Morphometric and molecular analyses confirm two distinct species of Calliarthron (Corallinales, Rhodophyta), a genus endemic to the northeast Pacific, which is monophyletic, known only from the northwest Pacific and comprises two species, C. yessoense and C. latissimum.
FATTY ACID SIGNATURES DIFFERENTIATE MARINE MACROPHYTES AT ORDINAL AND FAMILY RANKS 1
TLDR
It is suggested that FA signature analyses can offer a viable approach to clarifying fundamental questions about the contribution of different basal resources to food webs and imply that taxa with commercially valuable EFA signatures will likely share such characteristics with other closely related taxa that have not yet been evaluated for FA content.
DNA sequencing, anatomy, and calcification patterns support a monophyletic, subarctic, carbonate reef‐forming Clathromorphum (Hapalidiaceae, Corallinales, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
Leptophytum, based on its generitype, L. laeve, was shown to be a distinct genus more closely related to Clathromorphum than to Phymatolithon, and Variation in rbcL and psbA sequences suggested that multiple species may be passing under each currently recognized species of Clathromaorphum and Neopolyporolithon.
Genetic analysis of the Linnaean Ulva lactuca (Ulvales, Chlorophyta) holotype and related type specimens reveals name misapplications, unexpected origins, and new synonymies
TLDR
DNA sequencing of type specimens provides an unequivocal method for applying names to Ulva species, and indicates that U. fasciata and U. lobata are heterotypic synonyms of U. lactuca.
Mesophyllum erubescens (Corallinales, Rhodophyta)—so many species in one epithet
The name Mesophyllum erubescens has been applied to protuberant rhodolith specimens which sometimes occur abundantly, as well as to encrusting specimens in tropical and temperate waters in the
Crusticorallina gen. nov., a nongeniculate genus in the subfamily Corallinoideae (Corallinales, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analyses of 18S rDNA (SSU) gene sequences confirm the placement of Crusticorallina gen. nov. in Corallinoideae, the first nongeniculate genus in an otherwise geniculate subfamily, and four species are recognized based on rbcL, psbA and COI‐5P sequences.
ULTRASTRUCTURE OF VEGETATIVE ORGANIZATION AND CELL DIVISION IN THE UNICELLULAR RED ALGA DIXONIELLA GRISEA GEN. NOV. (RHODOPHYTA) AND A CONSIDERATION OF THE GENUS RHODELLA 1
TLDR
Cell division in D. grisea is not demonstrably different from that in Rhodella, although the unusually well‐defined material of the presumptive microtubule organizing center (MTOC) made it possible to follow the development and behavior of the MTOC to a greater degree than in previously studied red algal cells.
A new order of red algae based on the Peyssonneliaceae, with an evaluation of the ordinal classification of the Florideophyceae (Rhodophyta)
TLDR
A new order, Peyssonneliales, is herein proposed to accommodate the Peysonneliaceae, with only two of the genera recognized, and its relationship to the other red algal orders is discussed.
