HORTA, PAULO A. and OLIVEIRA, EURICO C.. Some Delesseriaceae (Ceramiales, Rhodophyta) new to the southwestern Atlantic. Rev. bras. Bot. [online]. 2001, vol.24, n.4, pp. 447-454. ISSN 1806-9959. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-84042001000400011.
Up to now 18 species of Delesseriaceae have been referred to the Brazilian coast, nine of which belong to the subfamily Delesserioideae. Here we report for the first time the occurrence of Apoglossum gregarium (Dawson) Wynne, Branchioglossum minutum Schneider and Hypoglossum anomalum Wynne & Ballantine collected by SCUBA diving on islands of the south and southeastern coast of Brazil. This report is an indication that the subtidal has been undersampled on the southwestern Atlantic.
