Abstract

Thirteen species of benthic marine algae are reported as new to the mid Atlantic Azores archipelago, and the status is confirmed for five other species. Some of the new records fall within their overall distributional range. The discovery of seven species (Codium taylorii, Digenea simplex, Gelidiella tinerfensis, Gelidiopsis intricata, Laurencia microcladia, Papenfussiella kuromo, Phyllophora gelidioides) represents a northern extension in their Atlantic distributional range. The archipelago is the western limit of Papenfussiella kuromo and Phyllophora gelidioides in the Atlantic Ocean. Ascophyllum nodosum, common as drift, was found for the first time attached to rocks on Graciosa Island and Caulerpa webbiana is confirmed as a recent immigrant to the archipelago. Four species are removed from the flora.

Keywords: Azores; benthic marine macroalgae; biogeography; morphology; taxonomy
