Abstract
    Uncalcified stromatolites built by the blue green alga Phormidium hendersonnii are presently growing on the outer reef flats of the ribbon reefs, Great Barrier Reefs, Australia. They show a noctihemeral lamination which may be complicated by currents and tidal influences. They represent a unique worldwide Recent stromatolitic population which may help us understanding the Phanerozoic evolution of stromatolites and their present day limited distribution in seawaters.
