Abstract: Morphological features in the red algal family Ceramiaceae are described
for four taxa from California. One of them, Bornetia californica, is described
as new to science and is distinguished from other known species by the method of
branching in the tetrasporangial and spermatangial laterals. Ptilothamnion codicolum
is a transfer from Pleonosporium and is placed in this genus because of the number
of cells of the fertile axis and the development of the gonimoblast. Spermothamnion
snyderae, widely distributed on the Pacific coast, is transferred to Tiffaniella because
of the structure of the gonimoblast and the lack of an involucre. Two species of
Callithamnion, C. rigidum Dawson and C. uncinatum Dawson, are placed in
synonymy with Callithamnion rupicolum Anderson.
