Abstract

The green algal genus Basicladia W. E. Hoffman & Tilden suggested for synonymy in Cladophora Kütz. by van den Hoek is reconfirmed as a genus based on the distinct basal system and the primarily epizoic habit associated with freshwater turtles. Previously assigned to Cladophora sect. Basicladia (W. E. Hoffmann & Tilden) C. Hoek, C. kosterae C. Hoek (type: France) and C. okamurae (S. Ueda) C. Hoek (type: Japan) transfer to Basicladia, based on morphology and molecular evidence. The two new combinations B. kosterae (C. Hoek) Garbary and B. okamurae (S. Ueda) Garbary bring the number of species in Basicladia to seven.
