Abstract: Morphology, taxonomy, and nomenclature of three species of Hawaiian
green algae (Chlorophyta) are examined. Udotea? abbreviata Gilbert is
shown to be incorrectly placed in that genus and more appropriately allied to
Pseudochlorodesmis. The complex nomenclatural relationships of Cladophora tildeniae
Brand in Tilden, Cladophora tildeniae Brand, and Cladophora hawaiiana Tilden
are described, with the latter deemed the appropriate name and Microdietyon
japonicum var. laxum Gilbert regarded as a synonym. An examination of Cladophoropsis
luxurians Gilbert has shown it to have delayed formation of transverse
walls at the bases of lateral branches, a feature not consistent with inclusion in
Cladophoropsis but rather with Cladophora. The new combinations Pseudochlorodesmis
abbreviata (Gilbert) Abbott & Huisman and Cladophora luxurians (Gilbert)
Abbott & Huisman are made, and nine species of marine benthic Chlorophyta
are newly recorded for the Hawaiian Islands.
