In the order Porphyridiales there are three clades based on molecular evidence. These show parallels with the low molecular weight carbohydrate (LMWCs) in different genera. Clade Porphyridiales 1 includes Dixoniella, Glaucosphaera, Rhodella, and one undescribed genus (3987) that all contain mannitol. Clade Porphyridiales 2 comprises taxa of the Stylonematales Rhodosorus and Stylonema species and contains digeneaside and sorbitol, whereas Chroodactylon has only sorbitol. In clade Porphyridiales… 

Trehalose, digeneaside, and floridoside in the Florideophyceae (Rhodophyta) – a reevaluation of its chemotaxonomic value

While trehalose and digeneaside are unsuitable as chemotaxonomic markers for red algal phylogeny, other LMWCs, such as polyols and D-/L-isofloridoside, well support recent molecular taxonomic treatments.

Variation in Storage α-Glucans of the Porphyridiales (Rhodophyta)

The results are consistent with two distinct evolution scenarios defined either by the independent acquisition of semi-crystalline starch-like structures in the different plant lineages or more probably by the loss of starch and reversion to glycogen synthesis in cyanidian algae growing in hot and acid environments.

Erythrolobus australicus sp. nov. (Porphyridiophyceae, Rhodophyta): a description based on several approaches

The unicellular marine red alga Erythrolobus australicus sp. nov. (Porphyridiophyceae) was isolated into laboratory culture from mangroves in Queensland and New South Wales, Australia. The single

Bangiophytes: From one Class to Six; Where Do We Go from Here?

Basic aspects of each class are discussed, despite that five of these classes comprise ∼1% of recognized species in the red algae, they are of considerable evolutionary importance and may have played a critical role in the origin of plastids in numerous other photosynthetic phyla.

MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF THE UPRIGHT ERYTHROPELTIDALES (COMPSOPOGONOPHYCEAE, RHODOPHYTA): MULTIPLE CRYPTIC LINEAGES OF ERYTHROTRICHIA CARNEA 1

The results show that there are several well‐supported lineages within the Erythropeltidales with only two morphologically recognizable taxa at present, and it is proposed that one lineage with samples close to the type locality be designated as E. carnea with a specific isolate as an epitype.

New taxa of the Porphyridiophyceae (Rhodophyta): Timspurckia oligopyrenoides gen. et sp. nov. and Erythrolobus madagascarensis sp. nov

Three independent features – ultrastructural characters, plastid gene sequences and LMWC patterns – support the suggested phylogeny and taxonomy of these red algae.

MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF THE CRUSTOSE ERYTHROPELTIDALES (COMPSOPOGONOPHYCEAE, RHODOPHYTA): NEW GENERA PSEUDOERYTHROCLADIA AND MADAGASCARIA AND THE EVOLUTION OF THE UPRIGHT HABIT 1

This molecular phylogenetic analysis on members that are crustose using samples collected from around the world and placed in unialgal culture indicates that one upright genus, Porphyropsis, is closely related to crustose genera and that the upright habit evolved at least twice in the order.

Neorhodella cyanea, a new genus in the Rhodellophyceae (Rhodophyta)

The cell ultrastructure is clearly dissimilar to that of the two other Rhodella species, R. maculata Evans and R. violacea (Kornmann) Wehrmeyer, and Neorhodella cyanea is established, a new genus in the Rhodellophyceae (Rhodophyta), which possesses a large parietal chloroplast with numerous lobes extending into the cell center.

Low Molecular Weight Carbohydrates in Red Algae – an Ecophysiological and Biochemical Perspective

The paleontological specimen Bangiomorpha pubescens from the 1,200-million-year-old Hunting Formation in the Canadian Arctic is morphologically very similar to the contemporary genus Bangia, and hence represents the earliest putative record for taxonomically resolvable complex multicellularity among eukaryotes.

Floridoside in the genus Laurencia (Rhodomelaceae: Ceramiales) – a chemosystematic study

Digeneaside, which is known as a characteristic photo-assimilatory product only in representatives of the Ceramiales, was not detected in any of the species investigated, including five species in which it was previously detected; its previously proposed high diagnostic value is negated and its reported occurrence is questioned.

Ribosomal DNA phylogeny of the Bangiophycidae (Rhodophyta) and the origin of secondary plastids.

The results support the independent origins of these secondary algal plastids from different members of the Bangiophycidae and are consistent with a monophyletic origin of the Florideophycaceae, which form a sister-group to the Bangia.

13C‐NMR spectroscopy as a tool to study organic osmolytes in the mangrove red algal genera Bostrychia and Stictosiphonia (Ceramiales)

The presence of D‐sorbitol seems to be a reliable chemosystematic character for both genera Bostrychia and Stictosiphonia, and the biological function of digeneaside (the main photo‐assimilated compound in members of the order Ceramiales) is still obscure.

Polyol Content of Bostrychia and Stictosiphonia (Rhodomelaceae, Rhodophyta) from Field and Culture

Field and culture samples of Bostrycha and Stictosiphonia species were analyzed for D-dulcitol and D-sorbitol that function as osmoregulatory solutes and photoassimilation products. Bostrychia

Taxonomic implications of algal photoassimilate patterns

It is shown that the kinetics of 14C-labelling during photosynthetic carbon assimilation are indicative for accumulation of certain compounds, which are in general characteristic for the different algal classes.

Time‐lapse videomicroscopy was used to film chloroplast rotation in the isolates of Rhodosorus marinus Geitler and one isolate of Rhodo magnei Fresnel & Billard maintained in culture, finding that these characteristics were found to be quite variable and dependant on culture conditions.
