Abstract

From morphological and molecular analysis, three charalean species, Lychnothamnus barbatus (Meyen) Leonhardi, Nitella japonica Allen, and N. inversa Imahori are recorded for the first time to the freshwater algal flora of Taiwan. The endangered monospecific genus, Lychnothamnus (Ruprecht) Leohardi, is the first genus recorded to the freshwater algal flora of Taiwan. In this study, we describe their morphological characters in detail and use rbcL and atpB sequences to confirm their phylogenetic relationships.
