Abstract

The new species Ulva ardreana is here proposed to replace Ulva bifrons, an invalid name because no holotype was designated in the protologue. The new species consists of two to three distromatic blades arising from a short stipe, and it is easily distinguished from the other blade-like Ulva species in having a remarkable diversity in both shape and size of cells in the two layers.

Keywords: Chlorophyta; Ulva ardreana; Ulva bifrons
