    Five species of marine algae, Acrothamnion preissii (Sonder) Wollaston (Rhodophyceae, Ceramiales), Caulacanthus ustulalus (Mert.) Kütz. (Rhodophyceae, Gigartinales), Ochrosphaera verrucosa Schussnig (Prymnesiophyceae, Coccosphaerales), Ostreobium quekettii Bornet et Flahault (Chlorophyceae, Bryopsidales), and Rhodosorus marinus Geitler (Rhodophyceae, Porphyridiales) are recorded for the first time in the Philippines. The sporophytic stage of Derbesia marina (Lyngbye) Solier is also reported. Caulacanthus indicus Weber-van Bosse and C. okamurae Yamada are synonymized with C. ustulatus based on morphological and anatomical comparisons of type material with field and culture specimens and successful cross-breeding of Philippine and Australian isolates in culture.
