RAMOS, Geraldo José Peixoto; BICUDO, Carlos Eduardo de Mattos; GOES-NETO, Aristóteles  and  MOURA, Carlos Wallace do Nascimento. New additions of coccoid green algae to the phycoflora of Brazil and the Neotropics. Acta Bot. Bras. [online]. 2014, vol.28, n.1, pp.08-16. ISSN 0102-3306.

The present study presents 11 new additions of coccoid green algae to the phycoflora of Brazil, including the first record of the genus Westellopsis for the neotropical region. Samples of periphyton and plankton were collected in two areas of the Marimbus Wetlands (the Marimbus do Baiano and Marimbus do Remanso, within the Marimbus-Iraquara Environmentally Protected Area), in the Chapada Diamantina Region of the state of Bahia, Brazil. Sample collection occurred during dry periods (April-June and August 2011) and rainy periods (October-December 2011 and February 2012). Here, we describe the taxa identified from the 56 samples collected.

Keywords : Chlorophyta; Chlorophyceae; Trebouxiophyceae; caatinga; Marimbus Wetlands.
