Abstract

We describe herein the morpho-anatomy of the elusive brown alga Rosenvingea nhatrangensis (Scytosiphonaceae, Phaeophyceae) and add this species to the flora of both the Philippines and Malaysia. At present, only two Rosenvingea species (R. intricata and R. orientalis) have been reported from both localities. We also report on the occurrence of R. australis in central Philippines based on molecular phylogenetic data, thus extending its distribution to the northern Pacific. First time account of the morphology of R. australis sporophyte under culture conditions is also provided.
