This is the first part (of four) of an annotated list of marine algae in Tanzania. The account is based on collections made by the author from 1966 till 1970. In the previous reports in this series some genera have been broken out and discussed separately: Giffordia, Sphacelaria, Dictyota, Ceramium and Laurencia. Our knowledge of the algal Vegetation of the East African shores has been fragmentary to say the least, based äs it had to be on some incomplete reports from temporaiy visits to the area. The most comprehensive list äs regards the red algae in Tanzania is that of Schmitz (1895) which included 82 species and varieties. The annotated lists of Hauck (1886-1889) had
