Abstract

During recent macroalgal surveys around the islands of San Andres, Old Providence and Santa Catalina, Caribbean Colombia, we encountered seven species of Cyanophyta, five of which are new records for Colombia. The new findings are: Brachytrichia quoyi, Lyngbya penicilliformis, Calothrix confervicola, Phormidium dimorphum and Phormidium roseum. Brachytrychia is a genus reported for the first time in Colombia.
