This is the first revision of Neogoniolithon species on the east coast of Mexico based on both DNA sequences ( psb A) and morpho-anatomical characters. Nine species names are provisionally applied based on morpho-anatomical comparisons with type specimens or with species descriptions: N. accretum , N. acropetum , N. erosum , N. mamillare , N. propinquum, N. rhizophorae, N. solubile , N. spectabile and N. strictum . For none of these species was type or topotype material sequenced, but all have…

Circumscription of Lithophyllum racemus (Corallinales, Rhodophyta) from the western Mediterranean Sea reveals the species Lithophyllum pseudoracemus sp. nov.
TLDR
The discovery of L. pseudoracemus unravelled a new case of cryptic diversity in Mediterranean coralline algae, highlighting the substantially underestimated diversity of these seaweeds.
Mediterranean Lithophyllum stictiforme (Corallinales, Rhodophyta) is a genetically diverse species complex: implications for species circumscription, biogeography and conservation of coralligenous habitats
TLDR
The diversity of Lithophyllum in Mediterranean coralligenous habitats has been substantially underestimated, and future work on these and other MediterraneanCorallines should use identifications based on DNA sequences.
Adeylithon bosencei gen. et sp. nov. (Corallinales, Rhodophyta): a new reef‐building genus with anatomical affinities with the fossil Aethesolithon
Adeylithon gen. nov. with one species, A. bosencei sp. nov., belonging to the subfamily Hydrolithoideae is described from Pacific coral reefs based on psbA sequences and morpho‐anatomy. In contrast
The coralline genera Sporolithon and Heydrichia (Sporolithales, Rhodophyta) clarified by sequencing type material of their generitypes and other species
TLDR
DNA analyses were performed on historical type material and recently collected specimens assigned to the two genera Sporolithon and Heydrichia to re‐evaluate its species, finding no morpho‐anatomical characters that distinguish these three species.
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.
Sequencing type material resolves the identity and distribution of the generitype Lithophyllum incrustans, and related European species L. hibernicum and L. bathyporum (Corallinales, Rhodophyta)
DNA sequences from type material in the nongeniculate coralline genus Lithophyllum were used to unambiguously link some European species names to field‐collected specimens, thus providing a great
Molecular and Morphological Diversity of Lithothamnion spp. (Hapalidiales, Rhodophyta) from Deepwater Rhodolith Beds in the Northwestern Gulf of Mexico
TLDR
Phylogenetic and species delimitation analyses of the newly generated sequences from recently dredged specimens at Ewing and Sackett Banks offshore Louisiana reveal the presence of at least six species of Lithothamnion, whose generic placement is confirmed by SEM images of features considered characteristic for the genus.
Revision of Corallinaceae (Corallinales, Rhodophyta): recognizing Dawsoniolithon gen. nov., Parvicellularium gen. nov. and Chamberlainoideae subfam. nov. containing Chamberlainium gen. nov. and Pneophyllum
TLDR
The Chamberlainoideae subfamily has no diagnostic morpho‐anatomical features that enable one to assign specimens to it without DNA sequence data, and it is the first subfamily to possess both Type 1 (Chamberlainium) and Type 2 (Pneophyllum) tetra/bisporangial conceptacle roof development.
Phylogenetic relationships of corallinaceae (Corallinales, Rhodophyta): taxonomic implications for reef‐building corallines
TLDR
A new, more complete, five‐marker molecular phylogeny of the family Corallinaceae, order Corallinales, shows a paraphyletic grouping of seven well‐supported monophyletic clades.
DNA sequencing of type material and newly collected specimens reveals two heterotypic synonyms for Harveylithon munitum (Metagoniolithoideae, Corallinales, Rhodophyta) and three new species
TLDR
Comparative analyses of rbcL, psbA, UPA, COI, and LSU sequences from contemporary field‐collected specimens revealed that H. munitum currently inhabits mesophotic rhodolith beds in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico, as well as the intertidal zone in the Florida Keys, Honduras, Atlantic Mexico, Caribbean Panama, and Guadeloupe, French West Indies.

Taxonomic circumscription of heterogeneous species Neogoniolithon brassica‐florida (Corallinales, Rhodophyta) in Japan
TLDR
Small subunit rDNA and cox1 analyses showed that N. brassica‐florida was polyphyletic, and strongly imply that crustose species lacking any protuberances such as Neogoniolithon fosliei (Heydrich) Setchell et Mason and species with protuberance or branches such as N.  frutescens (Foslie), which should be treated as genetically different groups (species).
The genus Lithophyllum (Lithophylloideae, Corallinaceae, Rhodophyta) in south-eastern Australia, with the description of L. riosmenae, sp. nov.

The Corallinaceae, subfamily Mastophoroideae (Corallinales, Rhodophyta) in south-eastern Australia
TLDR

REVISION OF THE MASTOPHOROIDEAE (CORALLINALES, RHODOPHYTA) AND POLYPHYLY IN NONGENICULATE SPECIES WIDELY DISTRIBUTED ON PACIFIC CORAL REEFS 1
TLDR
The Mastophoroideae is amended to be limited to Mastophora and Metamastophora with a thin thallus with basal filaments comprised of palisade cells, tetrasporangial conceptacles formed by filaments peripheral to fertile areas, and spermatangia derived only from the floor of male conceptacles, which supports Setchell’s (1943) original definition of the Mastophileae as having thin thalli.
MESOPHYLLUM SPHAERICUM SP. NOV. (CORALLINALES, RHODOPHYTA): A NEW MAËRL‐FORMING SPECIES FROM THE NORTHEAST ATLANTIC 1
TLDR
The addition of M. sphaericum as new maërl‐forming species suggests that European maârl beds are more biodiverse than previously understood.
