Species of Phaeophycean algae, not previously reported from Virginia, have been found in habitats of a tidal marsh in Accomack Co. They are Myrionema corunnae, Ralfsia verrucosa, Sorocarpus micromorus, Stictyosiphon soriferus, and Streblonema oligosporum. Studies in culture of Myrionema and Streblonema were made. Both taxa were found to have a type of development involving zoospores, prostrate plants and plurangia. Streblonema found growing endophytically in Porphyra was shown to have the potential of growth in the absence of a host plant.
