Notes on marine algae from Hateruma island, Ryukyu

  • Hiroshi Itono


This paper deals with a small collection of marine algae which the author gathered at Hateruma island, one of the southernmost islands of the Ryukyu groups. Twelve species are reported; seven of which,Udotea glaucescens, Codium ovale, Halimeda micronesica, H. fragilis, Ectocarpus laurenciae, Centroceras apiculatum andCeramium sympodiale, are recorded here for the first time in Japan, one of which,Feldmannia formosana, is proposed as comb. nov., the other four,Chlorodesmis haterumana, Struvea haterumensis, Centroceras japonicum andLophocladia minima, are described here as new species.
