Seven to Class Phaeophyta Turbinaria orinata, Dictyota dentata, Sargassum ilicifolium, Sargassum cristaefolium, Sargassum myriocystum, Padina australis, Hormophysa triquetra. And another seven to Class Rhodophyta Amphiroa fragilissima, Amphiroa foliaceae, Laurencia intermedia, Acanthophora specifera, Halymenia durvillaei, Portiera hornemannii, Hypnea charoides.
