The genus Ptilothamnion Thur. in Le Jolis is represented in South Africa by three, or possibly four species: P. codicolum, P. polysporum, P. goukammae spec. nov., and reportedly P. subsimplex, all recorded after 1983. An earlier record of P. pluma is probably erroneous. The new species differs from known representatives of the genus by producing strictly one involucral filament from the hypogenous cell and additionally one from the subhypogenous cell. Ptilothamnion is a widespread genus, but… 

Aglaothamnion rigidulum nov. spec. (Rhodophyta, Ceramiaceae) from South Africa

The main distinguishing characters of Aglaothamnion rigidulum are the robust nature of the filaments, the dense cortication in the lower part of the thallus, the alternating distichous branching pattern and the unbranched determinate laterals which curve upwards and overtop the apical cell.

Ptilothamnion richardsii (Rhodophyta) is a chantransia stage of Batrachospermum

It is argued that it is useful to continue to recognize entities with particular morphological characters and propose the form taxa Chantransia richardsii, C. macrospora and C. pygmaea to be chantransia stages of Batrachospermum taxa.

Sexual structures in Ptilothamnion sphaericum and Pterosiphonia complanata (Ceramiales, Rhodophyta) from the Atlantic Iberian Peninsula

Sexual structures of Ptilothamnion sphaericum and Pterosiphonia complanata are described for the first time and support the placement of P. sp Haericum in the genus PtilOTHamnion.

Where is the western limit of the tropical Indian Ocean seaweed flora? An analysis of intertidal seaweed biogeography on the east coast of South Africa

New, large-scale collections have been made of marine benthic macroalgae (seaweeds) on the east coast of South Africa, and the distributions of shallow-water species were analyzed in detail by
