Abstract About three-hundred genera are currently recognized in the brown algae (SAR lineage, sub-regnum Stramenopiles or Heterokonta, divisio Ochrophyta, class Phaeophyceae). Since the first morphology-based pre-cladistic classifications, the advent of the concepts and methods of molecular phylogenies has resulted in countless new insights within the field of brown algal supra-generic systematics. Unfortunately, subsequent taxonomic changes have not always been performed; and after over… 
Molecular phylogeny and taxonomic reassessment of the genus Cladostephus (Sphacelariales, Phaeophyceae)
TLDR
Comparisons of organellar (plastid rbcL and psbC, mitochondrial COI-5P) and nuclear (ITS nrDNA) markers for samples collected throughout the geographic range of C. spongiosus suggest that two genetic entities are treated under this name, which correspond to previously recognized morphological entities.
Taxonomic revision of the Agaraceae with a description of Neoagarum gen. nov. and reinstatement of Thalassiophyllum
TLDR
It is concluded that Thalassiophyllum should be reinstated as an independent genus, and the establishment of a new genus Neoagarum to accommodate A. fimbriatum and A. oharanese is proposed.
NOTES ON THE GENUS DICTYOTA (DICTYOTACEAE, PHAEOPHYCEAE) IN THE PERSIAN GULF, IRAN
In this research, the taxonomic status of the genus Dictyota in southern coastlines of Iran was studied. Taxonomy of the genus at species levels is complicated and difficult due to the high
Confirming the presence of two brown algae Stoechospermum polypodioides and Spatoglossum crassum as new record of Dictyotaceae in the Persian Gulf based on molecular and morphological analysis
TLDR
The presence of Stoechospermum polypodioides and  Spatoglossum crassum is approved as new record for the algal flora of Persian Gulf in Iranian coastlines.
Mitochondrial genome of Turbinaria ornata (Sargassaceae, Phaeophyceae): comparative mitogenomics of brown algae
TLDR
Several regions displaying greater inconsistency have been identified in brown algal mtDNAs, and the observed uncertainty regarding the position and support values of some branches might be closely associated with the heterogeneity of evolutionary rate.
Discovery of a novel brown algal genus and species Setoutiphycus delamareoides (Phaeophyceae, Ectocarpales) from the Seto Inland Sea, Japan
We describe a new genus and species of brown algae from the Seto Inland Sea, Japan. This species is similar to Delamarea in gross morphology and anatomy, but distinctive in having longer thalli with
Cladosiphon takenoensis sp. nov. (Ectocarpales s.l., Phaeophyceae) from Japan
TLDR
DNA sequences of the mitochondrial cox1 and cox3, chloroplast atpB, psaA, psbA and rbcL genes and the nuclear rDNA ITS2 region support the distinctness of the new brown algal species Cladosiphon takenoensis.
ON THE GENUS DICTYOTA ( DICTYOTACEAE , PHAEOPHYCEAE ) IN THE PERSIAN GULF , IRAN
In this research, the taxonomic status of the genus Dictyota in southern coastlines of Iran was studied. Taxonomy of the genus at species levels is complicated and difficult due to the high
Endoplura jejuensis sp. nov. and Endoplura koreana sp. nov. (Ralfsiales, Phaeophyceae) from Korea based on molecular and morphological analyses
The crustose brown algal genus Endoplura has been known as a monotypic genus characterized by its intercalary plurangial reproductive structures composed of 2–4 separate parallel filaments terminated
Taxonomic transfer of Syringoderma to Microzonia (Syringodermataceae, Syringodermatales), including a new record of Microzonia floridana comb. nov. for the Gulf of Mexico
TLDR
The taxonomic validity of the monospecific MicroZonia, the only other genus in the Syringodermatales, was reassessed on the basis of publicly available sequence data and described morphological features and in all molecular analyses, Microzonia velutina is nested within specimens of Syringderma.

Revision of the systematics of algae in the order Laminariales (Phaeophyta) from the Far-Eastern Seas of Russia on the basis of molecular-phylogenetic data
TLDR
The genetic studies indicate that 2 species of Laminaria and 12 intraspecific taxa from the Russian Pacific coasts should be transferred to the genus Saccharina, and the following new nomenclatural combinations are proposed: Saccharine bongardiana, comb.
A critical survey of the marine algae of Southern Australia. II. Phaeophyta
TLDR
A survey of the known Phaeophyta of southern Australia, including synonomy, references, type data, and critical notes, finds the following new taxa: Sphacelaria carpoglossi, Distromium flabellaturn, and D. multifidum.
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF DISCOSPORANGIUM MESARTHROCARPUM (PHAEOPHYCEAE) WITH A REINSTATEMENT OF THE ORDER DISCOSPORANGIALES 1
A molecular phylogenetic analysis of the little‐studied filamentous brown alga Discosporangium mesarthrocarpum (Meneghini) Hauck using rbcL and partial 18S rDNA sequences revealed that the species
A molecular assessment of northeast Pacific Alaria species (Laminariales, Phaeophyceae) with reference to the utility of DNA barcoding.
TLDR
DNA barcoding was applied, using the 5' end of the cytochrome c oxidase I (coxI-5') gene from the mitochondrial genome, to define species limits and relationships in northeast Pacific populations of Alaria, indicating a period of genetic isolation for at least three incipient species in the northeast Pacific.
Affiliation of the parasite Herpodiscus durvillaeae (Phaeophyceae) with the Sphacelariales based on DNA sequence comparisons and morphological observations
TLDR
The phylogenetic affinities of the brown alga Herpodiscus durvillaeae, an obligate parasite of Durvillaea antarctica endemic to New Zealand, were analysed using combined partial nuclear encoded ribosomal DNA and plastid encoded RuBisCO (rbcL) gene sequences to place this species within the order Sphacelariales.
Molecular phylogeny of crustose brown algae (Ralfsiales, Phaeophyceae) inferred from rbcL sequences resulting in the proposal for Neoralfsiaceae fam. nov.
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of the taxa assigned to the order, using rbcL DNA sequences, reveals that Ralfsiales is not a monophyletic group but is separated into two major groups, excluding Lithodermataceae, which were not included in the present analysis.
Circumscription of the order Ectocarpales (Phaeophyceae): bibliographical synthesis and molecular evidence
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of 27 brown algae including the type genera of the orders Chordariales, Dictyosiphonales, Ectocarpales sensu stricto, and Scytosiph onales, supports a broadly circumscribed order Ectoarpales, redefined to include taxa possessing an exserted, pedunculated pyrenoid.
THE RECLASSIFICATION OF LESSONIA LAMINARIOIDES (LAMINARIALES, PHAEOPHYCEAE): PSEUDOLESSONIA GEN. NOV. 1
TLDR
The results indicate that the basal splitting of the blade, which has been considered a diagnostic character for the family Lessoniaceae, is a result of convergent evolution.

TLDR
The first comprehensive and well‐supported molecular phylogeny for the ALL complex of the Laminariales is presented, maintaining the three recognized families, but with vastly different compositions, as well as proposing the Costariaceae fam.

TLDR
This study is the first to document the utility of the psaA and psbA sequences for brown algae and also the first report on the multigene phylogeny of the Phaeophyceae based on three protein‐coding plastid genes.
