Summary:
Four species of the brown algal genus Colpomenia Derbès et Solier (Scytosiphonales) are recognized as occurring within the Gulf of California: C. sinuosa (Roth) Derbès et Solier, C. tuberculata Saunders, C. ramosa Taylor, and C. phaeodactyla, new species. Some of the specimens interpreted by Dawson (1944) as Rosenvingea intricata are now referred to C. ramosa Taylor. Although recorded from the Pacific coast of Baja California, C. ramosa has not yet been reported within the Gulf. Interrelationships of the species complex of Colpomenia with related genera such as Iyengaria Boergesen, Rosenvingea Boergesen, and Scytosiphon C. Agardh are discussed.
