    Abstract

    Sargassum kendrickii N. Goldberg et Huisman, sp. nov. is described from subtidal habitats in the Esperance region, southern Western Australia. The new species belongs to the subgenus Phyllotrichia and can be distinguished from all previously described species in the morphology of its lateral branches, which are pinnate, alternately arranged, and have serrated margins. Vesicles are absent and receptacles form open clusters in branch axils. The new species is compared to all species of Sargassum subgenus Phyllotrichia worldwide.
