Centroceras secundum sp. nov. (Ceramiaceae, Rhodophyta) from the Sultanate of Oman
: Collections of a new species of benthic marine red algae, Centroceras secundum M.J. Wynne, were made on the southern coast of the Sultanate of Oman. Plants occurred during the peak of the summertime monsoon on rocky shores subject to maximum wave exposure at elevations ranging upward from the mid-eulittoral into the supralittoral fringe. The species is strikingly separable from other members of the genus Centroceras because of the much greater lengths of the thalli, the heavy cortication of the axes, and the secund arrangement of the branching.
