Abstract

Roccella montagnei Bél emend Awas and R. belangeriana Awas were keyed out as distinct species based on their reproductive strategies. These two species are similar in their morphology and secondary chemistry. The phylogenetic relationship analysis using maximum parsimony method based on ITS sequences of the nuclear ribosomal DNA clustered these two species in a single clade with a bootstrap value of 100 indicating that these two species are the same.
