|Abstract:||Specimens of Hormophysa cuneiformis (J. Gmelin) P. Silva, collected by
R. E. DeWreede in July 1968 and by the author in January 1971 from Palau, are
documented for the first time and represent the first collections of a member of
the family Cystoseiraceae from Micronesia. A single specimen 6 cm tall of H.
cuneiformis was collected 4.5 yr later in July 1975 on a reef bench tide pool at
Pagan Island in the Northern Mariana Islands by R. Rechebei and was reported
in a floristic account of the Chlorophyta and Phaeophyta of the Northern Mariana
Islands in 1977. Specimens of this large and conspicuous brown alga have
not been reported previously from Palau nor other islands in Micronesia.
