Introduction The non-geniculate coralline algae of the tropical Indo-Pacific region are poorly known at present, particularly as far as regional floras are concerned. For example, Chapman (1971) reported only 8 non-geniculate coralline species from Fiji. South and Kasahara (1992) recorded the 8 species reported by Chapman (1971) with an additional 4 species reported by Chapman (1977). None of these species have been studied in a modern context, and all must be treated as unconfirmed records. The only detailed studies of the non-geniculate coralline algae of any site in the tropical Indo-Pacific within the past 30 years were those of Gordon et ai (1976) who reported 15 species from Guam, Adey et al (1982) who reported 27 species from Hawaii, and Verheij (1993 a, 1994) who reported 16 species from Indonesia. A study of the nongeniculate coralline algae of Fiji has therefore been undertaken by the first author to improve our knowledge of the taxonomy of the group in this region. · During the course of this study, a species of Lithothamnion was found that seemed concordant with Lithothamnion prolifer Foslie. It also conformed to specimens collected on the Great Barrier Reef, and which had been suspected of being
