20 G. lacinulata

21 Rudimentary key to the external habit of the flat species of Gracilariaceae from Bocas 1.Thallus brown, leathery-thick, with thinner lateral blade-like proliferations; main blades with or without tiny marginal teeth G. curtissiae 1.Thallus not leathery-thick, of various shapes and colors

22 2.Stalk and holdfast hard and cartilaginous, with secondary cortex; blades even-sized, congested, dark wine red-brown --- Gracilaria sp. 2.Stalk and holdfast not hard and cartilaginous

23 3. thallus not pseudodichotomous thallus pseudodichotomous

24 4. Main axes with pronounced tooth-like marginal projections G. domingensis 4. Blades without tooth-like projections

25 5. Blades with leading axis and side branches G. intermedia 5. Blades without leading axes, strap-shaped G. lacinulata

26 5. No leading axis, axes of same-sized with, narrow apical regions G. smithsoniensis (in part) 5. Leading axis, varying apical region

27 6. Narrow apical branch subdichotomies G. flabelliformis 6. Branches with constant diameter 7

28 7. Branches narrow, with wide angles at tips --- G. smithsoniensis (in part) 7. Branches without wide angles8

29 8. Blades with narrow pseudodichotomies----- G.galetensis 9. Blades thin, with broad, round pseudodichotomies-- G. hayi

30 Cylindrical species Gracilaria cervicornis Gracilaria aff. cervicornis Hydropuntia cornea Hydropuntia caudata Gracilariopsis aff. panamaensis

32 G. aff. cervicornis

33 Gracilaria aff. cervicornis

34 Hydropuntia cornea
