A new species of Pseudocodium (Chlorophyta, Siphonales) from the west coast of Florida
A new species of Pseudocodium (P. fioridanum) is described from deep waters (37 to 55m) off the west coast of Florida. It is the third described species of Pseudocodium, and the first record of the genus from the northern hemisphere. X-ray diffraction studies indicate the presence of β, 1–4 mannan in its cell walls. The affinities of Pseudocodium are discussed.
