GARCIA-LOPEZ, DEISY Y.; MATEO-CID, LUZ ELENA  and  MENDOZA-GONZALEZ, A. CATALINA. New records and updated list of green algae (Chlorophyta) from the littoral of Veracruz, Mexico. Gayana Bot. [online]. 2017, vol.74, n.1, pp.41-56.  Epub June 05, 2017. ISSN 0016-5301.

The green algae (Chlorophyta) recorded in the literature and reported at herbaria for the littoral of Veracruz were reviewed, and data obtained from sampling during 2006 to 2016 were added for a total of 93 taxa. The Cladophoraceae family was the best represented with 28 taxa, followed by Ulvaceae with 15 and Caulerpaceae with 12. The floristic list is accompanied by data on seasonality, reproduction, habitat and references. Of the 93 taxa, 19 are new records for littoral of Veracruz, with Ulva profunda, Chaetomorpha vieillardii and Stigeoclonium tenue being new records for the occidental coast of the Atlantic of Mexico. Species diversity was compared between the winter rains, dry and rainy seasons during the period study. The greatest diversity was found during the rainy season.

Keywords : Ulvophyceae; inventory; seasonality; species richness.
