Abstract: A new genus and five new species belonging in the Ceramieae
have been found in recent analyses of the Hawaiian Ceramiaceae. Ardreanema,
the new genus, is a microscopic plant having a simple moniliform structure
with light cortication where cells meet (nodes) in the filament. Several gonimolobes
composed of uniseriate rows of carposporangia are formed on female
plants, and tetrasporangia, one per segment, are borne in a series near distal
ends of branches. A single species, A. farifructa, n. sp., is assigned to the
genus. The other new species are Ceramium dumosertum, Ceramium womersleyi,
Ceramium hanaense, and Ceramium ptilocladioides.
