    Abstract

    Specimens of a liagoroid red alga forming imbricating clusters in the shallow subtidal at Boca Chica, Bahia de Andres, Dominican Republic, are described and identified as Yamadaella caenomyce (Decne.) I.A. Abbott (Liagoraceae, Nemaliales). Yamadaella is a monotypic genus with the following distinguishing features: inflated terminal cortical cells, straight, three-celled carpogonial branches, and diffuse gonimoblast filaments. Yamadaella caenomyce has a wide distribution throughout the tropical Indo-Pacific Ocean, but its presence in the Atlantic Ocean was not previously confirmed.
