  • A coralline rhodolith was collected from a depth of 178 m, the lower end of the mesophotic zone, on Plantagenet Bank offshore of Bermuda by the submersible Nomad using a mechanical armature. [...] Key Result DNA sequence comparisons of the plastid encoded psb A and rbc L loci of this specimen to Sporolithales from the tropical western Atlantic and worldwide revealed it to be an unnamed species of Sporolithon . Sporolithon mesophoticum sp. nov. possesses tetrasporangial sori flush to slightly raised above the…Expand Abstract
