Diversity and taxonomic revision of tribes Rhipileae and Rhipiliopsideae (Halimedaceae, Chlorophyta) based on molecular and morphological data

Abstract

Genera and species of the tribes Rhipileae and Rhipiliopsideae are abundant in most coral reef ecosystems worldwide. However, the group has been largely overlooked, and very little genetic data is available to accurately assess its diversity, phylogenetic relationships, and geographical distribution. Our study provided an in-depth reassessment of tribes Rhipileae and Rhipiliopsideae based on a species-rich dataset and the combination of molecular species 2 delimitation, multilocus phylogenetic analyses (tufA, rbcL and 18S rDNA), and morphoanatomical observations. Our results revealed an unexpected diversity of 38 morphologicallyvalidated species hypotheses, including 20 new species, two of which are described in this paper and one resurrected species (Rhipilia diaphana). Based on our phylogenetic results we proposed to redefine the genera Rhipilia and Rhipiliopsis and described two new genera, Kraftalia gen. nov. (Rhipileae) and Rhipiliospina gen. nov. (Rhipiliopsideae). Finally, we validated Rhipiliella Kraft and included it in tribe Rhipileae. Although Rhipilia and Rhipiliopsis have a pantropical distribution, none of the species studied here appeared cosmopolitan; instead, they have restricted distributions.
