Drydenia foliata, Hungerfordia dichotoma and Enfieldia multilata (new genera and new species) are described as compression-impression remains of marine algae. The majority of the specimens come from the marine Ithaca and Enfield formations of Upper Devonian age. A few are younger. Comparison is made between the fossil and living algae mainly on the basis of gross morphology.
