Abstract
    Thirteen taxa of Rhodophyta, Phaeophyta and Chlorophyta are reported for the first time from Inhaca Island: Gelidiopsis repens, Solieria robusta, Tricleocarpa cylindrica, Dictyota humifusa, Padina boergesenii, Sargassum crassifolium, Stoechospermum polypodioides, Caulerpa microphysa, Cladophora catenata, C. coelothrix, C. vagabunda, Rhizoclonium africanum, Udotea indica. All of these species are new records for Mozambique, Cladophora catenata is recorded for the first time in the Indian Ocean.
