An annotated checklist and bibliography of the marine macroalgae of the Bermuda Islands
Schneider, Craig W.
An annotated checklist of the 431 species of marine macroalgae presently known from Bermuda, and all of the literature citations for those reports, are provided. The list includes 240 Rhodophyta, 66 Phaeophyceae, 118 Chlorophyta, and 7 Chrysophyceae and Xanthophyceae, as well as an additional 33 species reported from Bermuda in the past but now questioned in the flora. Also included are the first reports of Chroodactylon ornatum, Ceramium cimbricum f. flaccidum, Spermothamnion investiens var. cidaricola, Dictyota hamifera, D. humifusa, Cladophora jongiorum, and Caulerpa cupressoides var. lycopodium from the islands. A new variety from a land-locked salt pond, Sargassum bermudense var. stagnale, is validated. Nineteen species reported in the distant past for Bermuda have been removed from the flora.
