Title: Peleophycus multiprocarpium gen. et sp. nov. (Gloiosiphoniaceae, Rhodophyta) 
Author: Abbott, Isabella A.
Date: 1984-10

Abstract: Peleophycus multiprocarpium is described as a genus and species
new to the red algal family Gloiosiphoniaceae (Cryptonemiales), in which a given
supporting cell may bear one or more carpogonial branches and one to several
auxiliary cell branches. Though several gonimoblasts could thus be formed on
the same supporting cell, this condition has not been observed. Nonetheless it
suggests a possible phylogenetic pathway from less complicated to more complex
relationships of reproductive branches. In its structure of reproductive organs,
Peleophycus seems most closely related to Gloeophycus, described from Korea
and northwestern Japan. Peleophycus is one of several new genera and species
that occurred in an unexpected subtidal (ca. 10-12 m depth) spring marine flora
in the subtropics off Hawaii.
