Abstract Classification of the red algae (Rhodoplantae) has undergone significant change since the seminal work of Harald Kylin, “Die Gattungen der Rhodophyceen,” a half century ago. The number of genera has nearly doubled over this time period, at least in part due to recent molecular comparative work. Information gleaned from gene-sequencing analyses has resulted in a red algal classification that reflects a more accurate phylogenetic framework than that based solely on morphological data… 
Addendum to the synoptic review of red algal genera
TLDR
An addendum to Schneider and Wynne's A synoptic review of the classification of red algal genera a half century after Kylin’s ‘‘Die Gattungen der Rhodophyceen’’ is presented, with an updating of names of new taxa at the generic level and higher.
Second addendum to the synoptic review of red algal genera
TLDR
A synoptic review of the classification of red algal genera a half a century after Kylin's “Die Gattungen der Rhodophyceen” is presented, with an updating of names of new taxa at the generic level and higher.
Third addendum to the synoptic review of red algal genera
A third addendum to Schneider and Wynne’s (2007) “A synoptic review of the classification of red algal genera a half century after Kylin’s 1956 ‘Die Gattungen der Rhodophyceen’ ” is presented,
The Order Palmariales (Rhodophyta) in the North Pacific Area of Russia: Taxonomic Revision of Halosaccion Kützing and Devaleraea Guiry
TLDR
Research data on taxonomy of the members of the family Palmariaceae from the Russian Pacific coasts are presented and special attention is paid to taxonomic status of two genera of palmarialean algae inhabiting the area: Halosaccion and Devaleraea.
The Systematics and Current Problems in the Taxonomy of Algae of the Order Gigartinales (Rhodophyta) from the Far Eastern Seas of Russia
TLDR
The changes in the taxonomy of algae from the Far Eastern seas of Russia based on the molecular phylogenetic data are analyzed and taxonomic problems that can only be resolved by modern methods are discussed.
Collections from the mesophytic zone off Bermuda reveal three species of Kallymeniaceae (Gigartinales, Rhodophyta) in genera with transoceanic distributions
TLDR
A molecular survey of red algae collected by technical divers and submersibles from 90 m in the mesophotic zone off the coast of Bermuda revealed three species assignable to the Kallymeniaceae, one of which represents a deep water western Atlantic species now moved to an Australasian genus.
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.
A new monotypic family for the enigmatic crustose red alga Plagiospora gracilis
Plagiospora gracilis, a mucilaginous crustose red alga growing on subtidal pebbles on both coasts of the North Atlantic Ocean, forms distinctive tetrasporangia (red algal meiotic structures that
Observations on morphology and the taxonomic affiliation of Coelothrix irregularis (Harv.) Børgesen (Rhodymeniales, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
Additional morphological characters for the species as well as DNA sequence analyses from SSU and rbcL genes further support the placement of Coelothrix in the Champiaceae rather than the Rhodymeniaceae.

TLDR
This work provides a comprehensive review of the literature pertaining to the antiquity, diversity, and systematics of the red algae and proposes a contemporary classification based on recent and traditional evidence.
Contribution to the Generic Classification of the Rhodochortaceae (Rhodophyta, Nemaliales)
The family names related to acrochaetioid algae are briefly surveyed and Rhodochortaceae Nasr is adopted as the correct name of the family based on the nomenclatural priority. A historical review of
A review of Colacopsis and Melanocolax, red algal parasites on South African Rhodomelaceae (Rhodophyta)
TLDR
A reinvestigation of the type species of Melanocolax provides information that indicates it has a close relationship to Colacopsis, and it is recommended that the two genera be combined.
Reproductive development and classification of the red algal genus Ceratodictyon (Rhodymeniales, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
It is argued that Ceratodictyon and the non-sponge-associated Gelidiopsis are closely related genera that should be maintained as distinct taxa, rather than combined into the single genus CeratODictyon as has been advocated recently.

TLDR
New collections of its only member, Pleurostichidium falkenbergii Heydrich, have enabled a thorough re‐assessment of this species from a classical‐morphological standpoint and have allowed the first photographs to be made of critical features of this little‐known obligate epiphyte of the brown alga Xiphophora chondrophylla (Turner) Montagne ex Harvey.

A taxonomic reassessment of Lithophyllum (Corallinaceae, Rhodophyta) based on studies of R. A. Philippi's original collections
TLDR
The name Lithothamnium Philippi has been widely and persistently applied to a taxon not including its nomenclatural type and it therefore must be rejected under Article 69 of the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature.
