León-Tejera, Hilda; Montejano, Gustavo; Gold-Morgan, Michelle


Knowledge of marine cyanoprokaryotes from México is scarce. Until recently, information is very limited, consisting of lists of species without descriptions or illustrations. In order to contribute to the survey of this biotopes in México, we present the detailed description of several populations of two common but previously unreported epilithic supratidal and intertidal species: Kyrtuthrix cf. maculans and Scytonema cf. insulare.
