Resumo: Thirteen species of benthic marine algae are reported new for the isolated mid-Atlantic Azores archipelago and five older records are confirmed. Seven (Bangia atropurpurea, Codium fragile spip. tomentosoides, Ectocarous fasciculatus, E siliculosus, Porphyrostromium ciliare, Ulothrix flacca and Ulvaria oxysperma) are widespread amphi-Atlantic species some of which extend in distributional range south to the Canary Islands. Cryptonemia seminervis, Ctenosiphonia hypnoides and Phyllophora sicula are known from the northeastern Atlantic Ocean only and also occur in the Canary Islands. The Azores archipelago is the western limit of distribution of Codium fragile ssp. atlanticum, Bostrychia scorpioides, Bryopsis cupressina, Erythroglossum laciniatum, Haliptilon squamatum and Phyllophora sicula, and the southern limit of C. fragile ssp. atlanticum and E laciniatum. The tropical species Phyllodictyon anastomosans, Valonia macrophysa and Wurdemannia miniata reach their northern limit of distribution there. Asparagopsis taxiformis is now less common possibly due to competition with the non-native A. armata; subspecies of the non-native C. fragile now occur widely in the Azores. The status of Fucus vesiculosus, Ulva (Enteromorpha) clathrata and Rhizoclonium tortuosum is clarified and other species have been removed from the flora. The continuing addition of new species records for the Azores shows the archipelago to be floristically richer than other Atlantic islands except for the Canary Islands.
