Abstract

The first monographic account of the south-eastern Australian representatives of the Corallinaceae, subfamily Mastophoroideae (Corallinales, Rhodophyta) is presented. The Mastophoroideae contains eight extant genera, four of which [Hydrolithon, Mastophora, Neogoniolithon, Pneophyllum] were confirmed to occur in south-eastern Australia. Hydrolithon is represented by six species (H. farinosum, H. improcerum, H. munitum, H. onkodes, H. rupestre and H. samo├źnse). Pneophyllum is represented by three species (P. coronatum, P. fragile and P. submersiporum) while Mastophora and Neogoniolithon are represented by a single species each (Mastophora pacifica and Neogoniolithon brassica-florida). Morphological and anatomical accounts are provided, including keys to genera and species, comparisons with related south-eastern Australian mastophoroid species, information on distribution, seasonality, habitat and nomenclature. Brief biogeographical comparisons between south-eastern Australia and other Australasian regions are also made.
