    Abstract

    Twenty-three taxa of Caulerpa Lamouroux are listed from the Fiji Islands, including Caulerpa reniformis sp. nov. and four taxa newly recorded [Caulerpa biserrulata Sonder, Caulerpa nummularia Harvey ex J.Agardh, Caulerpa racemosa var. lamourouxii (Turner) Weber-van Bosse and Caulerpa webbiana f. disticha Vickers]. A further four taxa are listed as Species inquirendae [C. crassifolia (C.Agardh) J.Agardh, C. juniperoides J.Agardh. C. mexicana var. pluriseriata W.R.Taylor and C. remotifolia Sonder]. A revised key to the species of Caulerpa from the Fiji Islands is presented. Verification of records is based on the personal collections of the authors and specimens housed in the Phycological Herbarium, South Pacific Regional Herbarium (SUVA-A), the University of British Columbia (UBC), the Bernice P. Bishop Museum (BISH) and the University of California at Berkeley (UC).
