A new marine Labyrinthula was isolated from the seagrass Halophila englemannii using serum-agar culture techniques. This phycomycete fungus, Labyrinthula saliens n. sp., is characterized by: (1) a dis- tinctive, teardrop-shaped spindle cell having a morphologically differentiated anterior; (2) a peculiar spindle-cell locomotion consisting of intermittent rapid but short advances; and (3) a recurrent chytroid epiendobiotic sporangial stage.
