ABSTRACT To resolve the paraphyly of Batrachospermum, the sections of the genus have been methodically investigated using DNA sequence data and morphology; this has resulted in the raising of many sections to genus status. Phylogenetic analyses of combined rbcL and COI-5P showed Batrachospermum section Macrospora to be a well-supported clade. We propose Montagnia gen. nov. Montagnia is distinguished from other sections or genera of the Batrachospermales by the following characters: plants… 
Paludicola gen. nov. and revision of the species formerly in Batrachospermum section Turfosa (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta).
Substantial genetic variation within the Batrachospermales genus was discovered and 12 species are recognized based on DNA sequence data as well as morphological characters and geographic distribution.
Revision of the Genus Sirodotia Kylin (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta) with Description of Four New Species
Phylogenetic analyses showed the genus Sirodotia Kylin to be a monophyletic lineage with high support and the following morphological characters were applied to distinguish species: primary fascicle cell number, spermatangial arrangement, origin of gonimoblast filament and size of carposporangia.
A New Species of Kumanoa (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta) from Baiyun Mountain, Guangdong, China
A new Kumanoa species is described and illustrated from Baiyun Mountain, Guangdong, China, based on morphological observations and phylogenetic analysis, which places K. baiyunensis in a well-supported clade.
Diversity of Batrachospermales (Rhodophyta) in the Iberian Peninsula
Seven taxa reported in the region using current taxonomy are confirmed with sequence data and morphology, and biogeographic trends show a flora with most species being well represented in parts of Europe, two taxa that are shared between Europe and North America, and one cosmopolitan species.
Kumanoa chaugulei (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta), a new species of freshwater red algae from the Western Ghats, India
Kumanoa chaugulei is described from Idamalayar, a major tributary of Periyar River flowing through the state of Kerala, India, based on morphological and molecular evidence and is likely to be endemic to the Western Ghats.
The freshwater red algae (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta) of Africa and Madagascar I. New species of Kumanoa, Sirodotia and the new genus Ahidranoa (Batrachospermaceae)
Four new species and one new genus of freshwater red algae from the Batrachospermales are described, based on morphological and molecular evidence, among the first new descriptions since 1899 from the African continent and since 1964 from Madagascar.
Phylogenetic, evolutionary, and biogeographic origin of the genus Sheathia (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta)
Molecular sequences of rbc L, COI-5P, and psb A were used to investigate the phylogenetic, evolutionary, and biogeographic origin of the genus Sheathia, and three molecular markers supported that the two gametophyte stage specimens belong to S. longipedicellata.
Current status of freshwater red algal diversity (Rhodophyta) of the African continent including description of new taxa (Batrachospermales)
It is estimated that 14 to 19 batrachospermalean taxa can be recognised for the African flora, and that with more study, that number could easily double or triple based on the diversity known from other well-studied continents.
Virescentia guangxiensis (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta): a new freshwater red algal species from South China
This study expands the known species diversity and geographical distribution of freshwater Rhodophyta in China by reporting the first species of the order Batrachospermales reported in Guangxi and the secondspecies of the genus Virescentia reported in China.
Survey of Freshwater Red Algae from the Batrachospermales (Rhodophyta) in South Carolina
Abstract Freshwater red algae are important components of the algal flora in streams and rivers with high water quality. The order Batrachospermales is the most species-rich portion of the red algal


Revision of Batrachospermum sections Acarposporophytum and Aristata (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta) with the establishment of the new genera Acarposporophycos and Visia
Sections of the paraphyletic genus Batrachospermum have been recently investigated using molecular (DNA sequence data) and morphological evidence and the characters used to circumscribe species were re-evaluated by reexamining type specimens as well as new collections.
Revision of Batrachospermum Section Virescentia (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta) with the Establishment of the New Genus, Virescentia Stat. nov.
Five species of Batrachospermum section Virescentia are recognized and a new species is proposed as follows and the characters used to circumscribe species are re-evaluated by reexamination of type specimens and new collections in historically important areas.
Revision of section Setacea of the genus Batrachospermum (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta) with emphasis on specimens from Brazil
The analyses of rbcL and cox1 sequences revealed that section Setacea forms a well-supported clade, which was positioned close but clearly separated from some species of Batrachospermum usually called group ‘Australasica’.
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.
Distribution and systematics of Batrachospermum (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta) in North America. 9. Section Batrachospermum: description of five new species
Five new species belonging to Batrachospermum section Batrachespermum are described from North America, with unique forked trichogynes and spermatangia on one-celled involucral filaments.
Batrachospermum (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta) in Australia and New Zealand: new taxa and emended circumscriptions in sections Aristata, Batrachospermum, Turfosa and Virescentia
Fifteen species of Batrachospermum from Australia and New Zealand are documented, including (except for the recently described B. antipodites Entwisle) descriptions, photomicrographs, maps and keys, with many of the new taxa difficult to allocate in the existing sectional system.
A new genus, Volatus and four new species of Batrachospermum sensu stricto (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta)
The new genus Volatus shares the distinctive characteristic of twisted or curled carpogonium-bearing branches with Kumanoa and Tuomeya but was not sister to either of these genera, suggesting that this character may have arisen at least three times in the order.
Molecular and morphological evidence for Sheathia gen. nov. (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta) and three new species
It is found that heterocortication, the presence of both cylindrical and bulbous cells on the main axis, is an underlying synapomorphy of this clade Batrachospermum section Helminthoidea.
The sequence data from the large subunit of ribulose‐1,5‐bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (rbcL) gene and 18S ribosomal DNA (small subunit) of taxa in the freshwater rhodophyte order
Phylogenetic relationship of Batrachospermum species (Batrachospermales, Rhodophyta) from coastal streams in French Guiana
Batrachospermum turfosum is the only species presently sequenced from section Turfosa and these samples formed a well-supported clade on a long branch, which was variously related to other batrACHospermalean taxa in the analyses.
