The phylogenetic relationship among 12 previously described batrachospermalean taxa and a novel member of the order were investigated using the LSU and rbcL genes separately and in combination. The primary goal of this research was to establish the phylogenetic placement of a previously undescribed freshwater red alga from Chile. The results showed that the new entity with pseudoparenchymatous tube morphology is a member of the Batrachospermales and Petrohua bernabei gen. et sp. nov. is… 
Nocturama gen. nov., Nothocladus s. lat. and other taxonomic novelties resulting from the further resolution of paraphyly in Australasian members of Batrachospermum (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
A new genus, Nocturama, is proposed for a clade of Batrachospermum antipodites specimens based on the well‐resolved phylogeny and improved statistical support values for most nodes showed, providing a framework for taxonomic revision.
Notes on the Marine Algae of the Bermudas. 12. A phylogenetic Assessment of Nemastoma gelatinosum M. Howe (Rhodophyta, Nemastomatales) from its Type Locality1
TLDR
Molecular studies and morphological observations confirm the generic placement of the Bermuda plants in Platoma, necessitating the taxonomic change to the nomenclatural precedent as P. chrysymenioides from the Gulf of Mexico.
Molecular Systematics and Biogeography of Thorea (Thoreales, Rhodophyta) from Shanxi, China
TLDR
Analysis of phylogenetic trees for Thorea and related taxa indicated that Thorea originated in the Northern Hemisphere, most probably in Asia, despite the disjunction between Asia and North America.
SYSTEMATICS OF THE BATRACHOSPERMALES (RHODOPHYTA)—A SYNTHESIS 1
TLDR
This taxonomic synthesis increases the level of monophyly within the Batrachospermales but minimizes taxonomic change where data are still inadequate, resulting in a few relatively conservative taxonomic changes.
DNA BARCODING IS A POWERFUL TOOL TO UNCOVER ALGAL DIVERSITY: A CASE STUDY OF THE PHYLLOPHORACEAE (GIGARTINALES, RHODOPHYTA) IN THE CANADIAN FLORA 1
TLDR
A thorough sampling along the Canadian coast and using the DNA barcode for the assignment of collections to genetic species to explore algal diversity in the Canadian flora revealed the presence of cryptic diversity within the genera Coccotylus, Mastocarpus, Ozophora, and Stenogramme.
Pseudopolyides furcellarioides gen. et sp. nov. (Gigartinales, Rhodophyta) an erect member of the Cruoriaceae based on morphological and molecular evidence
TLDR
Pseudopolyides furcellarioides was described from the Atlantic coasts of the northern Iberian Peninsula based on morphological and molecular evidence and placed within the previously monogeneric Cruoriaceae, making it the first non-crustose representative of this family.
A case for true morphological crypsis: Pacific Dasya anastomosans and Atlantic D. cryptica sp. nov. (Dasyaceae, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
This case is demonstrated for two species differentiated by sequences of a portion of the rbcL chloroplast gene: Dasya anastomosans from the Indo-Pacific and D. cryptica sp.
A new genus and species from the North Atlantic, Archestenogramma profundum (Phyllophoraceae, Rhodophyta), with taxonomic resolution of the orphaned Leptofauchea brasiliensis
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analyses of the Bermudian plants showed them to be to be a new genus and species of the Phyllophoraceae (Gigartinales), Archestenogramma profundum, and proved instructive as to the disposition of L. brasiliensis, a species that was suggested to be incorrectly assigned to the Rhodymeniales for over a quarter of a century and even recently excluded from Leptofauchea.
Morphological and Molecular Phylogenetic Analysis of a Lemanea Specimen (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta) from China
TLDR
Morphological characterization and molecular phylogenetic analyses were conducted for a Lemanea specimen collected from Guilin, China, and it was found that the spermatangial shapes were variable among different populations.
First report of Halopeltis (Rhodophyta, Rhodymeniaceae) from the non-tropical Northern Hemisphere: H. adnata (Okamura) comb. nov. from Korea, and H. pellucida sp. nov. and H. willisii sp. nov. from the North Atlantic
TLDR
Using genetic sequencing and morphological characters to distinguish each from existing species, three procumbent species, including two novel species, from warm temperate Northern Hemisphere waters are added to the recently resurrected genus Halopeltis.

MOLECULAR SYSTEMATICS OF THE FLORIDEOPHYCEAE (RHODOPHYTA) USING NUCLEAR LARGE AND SMALL SUBUNIT rDNA SEQUENCE DATA
TLDR
Phylogenetic trees produced from SSU‐only analyses differed somewhat in particulars of branching within lineages 2 and 4 but overall were congruent with the LSU‐only and combined LSU–SSU results.

TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of RUBISCO large subunit (rbcL) gene sequence data revealed three clades of batrachospermalean taxa: a “mixed” clade composed of taxa sampled from Australia and North America, a clade of primarily Australian collections, and aClade of predominantly North American samples.

Systematics of the red algal order Acrochaetiales and related taxa was investigated using combined small- and large-subunit nuclear ribosomal DNA (SSU and LSU rDNA, respectively) sequence data, and emended generic descriptions are provided for AcroCHAetium, Audouinella, Colaconema and Rhodochorton, and a new family of acrochaetic algae is described, the Colaconemataceae.

TLDR
The freshwater rhodophyte Balbiania investiens (Lenormand) Sirodot was collected as an epiphyte of Batrachospermum in small streams in England, Ireland, and Germany and it is clear that the genus Balbiaia is a valid taxon and that it is phylogenetically associated with Rhododraparnaldia.

TLDR
The acceptance of a broadly circumscribed paraphyletic species (paraspecies), B. pseudogelatinosum, which includes both dioecious and monoecious populations is recommended, which is no better or worse than any other taxonomic character.
