A new species of the genus Monosporus, M. inkyui sp. nov., from Korea is described. This species has only monosporangia as a reproductive structure and is distinguished by having four-celled propagule-forming branch which bud from a distal end of axial cell and developing a propagule on a basalmost cell of the branch. When the plants were investigated in culture, a typical non-sexual life history was observed. Under various environmental conditions, it developed fertile branch with propagule consistently and only the vegetative propagule was observed for the reproductive structure.
Key words: Monosporus, propagule, asexual reproduction, Ceramiaceae, Rhodophyta
