Eight species of Sargassum subgenus Bactrophycus section Teretia were collected from the coasts of Korea: S. confusum C. Agardh, S. pallidum (Turner) C. Agardh, S. muticum (Yendo) Fensholt, S. thunbergii (Mertens ex Roth) Kuntze, S. fulvellum (Turner) C. Agardh, S. hemiphyllum (Turner) C. Agardh, S. nipponicum Yendo, and S. miyabei Yendo. These species were investigated on morphological variations and geographical distribution in Korea. The valuable taxonomic characters between similar species of this section were discussed with special reference to thickness of leaves, types of holdfasts, shape of leaves and vesicle, and length of rhizoids.
Key words: morphological variation, Sargassum, section Teretia, subgenus Bactrophycus
