Agardh, Anadyomene saldanhae Joly et Oliveira Filho, Caulerpa webbiana(?) Montagne, Bryobesia sp., Halimeda goreauii Taylor, H. copiosa Goreau et Graham ., Avrainvillea nigricans Decaisne, F. fulva Howe, A. elliottii A. et E. S. Gepp, Udotea cyathiformis Decaisne, Rhipiliopsis stri (Earle et Young) Farghaly et Denizot y Polyphysa myriospora (Joly et Cordeiro-Marino) Bula, comb. nov. The latter and A. saldanhae are reported by the first time for the Caribbean Sea. The discovery of R. stri in Colombia, constitutes the third record considering Rhipiliopsis reticulata (Van den Hoek) Farg. et. Den. collected in Curacao as conspecific to R. stri, initially collected in the Caribbean coast of Panamá. Morphological and ecological descriptions and illustrations of all of them are given, and a map indicating the collection places also.
