Descriptions, geographic distribution, keys, and references to the most important or abundant economic species in these genera from the floras of Chile, Gulf of California, the Caribbean, California, Hawaii, Guam, Taiwan, Japan, and China are also given. A list of "Gracilaria" species from the Philippines is included. Several new species are described.
