The Stylonematales is the sole order of the Stylonematophyceae. The order consists of a mixture of filamentous or unicellular taxa that are small, grow on various surfaces, and are described from many floras, indicating that they may be cosmopolitan. Such ubiquity has been proposed to be due to properties of microorganisms, such as large population sizes, rather than human‐derived phenomena. While their small nature makes most records fortuitous, we targeted these red algae to get a better… Expand
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF THE UPRIGHT ERYTHROPELTIDALES (COMPSOPOGONOPHYCEAE, RHODOPHYTA): MULTIPLE CRYPTIC LINEAGES OF ERYTHROTRICHIA CARNEA 1
TLDR
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. Expand
Complex patterns of actin molecular evolution in the red alga Stylonema alsidii (Stylonematophyceae, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
A complex evolutionary history of the actin gene in members of the Stylonematophyceae is revealed and the lack of knowledge into the basic biology (ploidy level, life cycle characteristics) of this class is highlighted. Expand
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF THE CRUSTOSE ERYTHROPELTIDALES (COMPSOPOGONOPHYCEAE, RHODOPHYTA): NEW GENERA PSEUDOERYTHROCLADIA AND MADAGASCARIA AND THE EVOLUTION OF THE UPRIGHT HABIT 1
TLDR
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. Expand
Bangiophytes: From one Class to Six; Where Do We Go from Here?
TLDR
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. Expand
Global sampling reveals low genetic diversity within Compsopogon (Compsopogonales, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
There is only a single monospecific genus worldwide and that the species is correctly called C. caeruleus, since this is the oldest validly published name; all other previously described species of Compsopogon and CompsOPogonopsis are synonyms. Expand
Physiological performance of the red alga Stylonema alsidii (Stylonematophyceae) under varying salinities
TLDR
Euryhaline growth and photosynthesis due to pronounced photo-protective capabilities and the regulation of sorbitol enables S. alsidii to colonise habitats exhibiting large salinity fluctuations and along salinity gradients and, thus, can contribute to the wide distribution of this species. Expand
Red Algal Genomics: A Synopsis
TLDR
A summary is presented of genomic studies targeting this algal group, the Rhodophyta, with suggestions for future research in phylogenomics. Expand
Scorched mussels (BIVALVIA: MYTILIDAE: BRACHIDONTINAE) from the temperate coasts of South America: phylogenetic relationships, trans-Pacific connections and the footprints of Quaternary glaciations.
TLDR
This study addresses aspects of the phylogeny and phylogeography of scorched mussels from southern South America as well as their ecophylogenetic implications, and concludes that the assembly of communities cannot be explained solely in terms of environmental drivers, as history also matters. Expand
First Report of Endolithic Members of Rhodosorus marinus (Stylonematales, Rhodophyta) Growing Inside Rhodoliths Offshore Louisiana, Northwestern Gulf of Mexico
TLDR
This is the first report of a unicellular red alga spending part of its life history endolithically inside biogenic rhodoliths, and the colonies are Rhodosorus marinus Geitler. Expand
Taxonomic deflation: molecular evidence places Membranella nitens in taxonomic synonymy with Smithora naiadum (Erythropeltidales, Compsopogonophyceae, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
Molecular analyses of the 18S ribosomal RNA gene and the psbA gene of Membranella nitens and Smithora naiadum from Pacific North America show that both taxa are genetically identical. Expand

Molecular phylogeny of the genus Tribonema (Xanthophyceae) using rbcL gene sequence data: monophyly of morphologically simple algal species
TLDR
The data suggest that presently identified morpho-species of Tribonema may not be useful as evolutionary units or in biodiversity assessment of freshwater ecosystems. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of some European Gelidium (Gelidiales, Rhodophyta) species, based on rbcL nucleotide sequence analysis
TLDR
The methods and primers for sequencing rbcL were developed and used in a study of 37 Gelidium species and populations to produce an independent data set for developing phylogenetic hypotheses and consequently a more natural classification of the genus. Expand
NEW INSIGHTS IN THE TAXONOMY OF THE CERAMIUM SINICOLA COMPLEX: RESURRECTION OF CERAMIUM INTERRUPTUM (CERAMIACEAE, RHODOPHYTA) 1
TLDR
Molecular analyses show that C. sinicola is the sister group to C. codicola, and C. interruptum is basal to them, which allowed for an assessment of the trend in the evolution of cortication pattern and attachment mode to the host. Expand
Morphology and Life History of Stylonema cornu-cervi Reinsch (Goniotrichales, Rhodophyta) from Japan
TLDR
The morhology and life history of Stylonema cornu-cervi Reinsch from Japan were investigated and it was distinguished from S. alsidii in that the branches were few, the multiseriate portions were observed on the early stage (six-celled stage), and the grown thalli were multisersiate except at the base and apices.

Observations on Purpureofilum apyrenoidigerum gen. et sp. nov. from Australia and Bangiopsis subsimplex from India (Stylonematales, Bangiophyceae, Rhodophyta)
TLDR
Transmission electron microscopy investigation of Purpureofilum and Bangiopsis revealed that the Golgi complexes are associated only with rough endo‐plasmic reticulum and that the plastid contains a peripheral thylakoid; this combination of features being the same as in all other multicellular members of the Stylonematales.
