Durvillaea poha sp. nov. (Fucales, Phaeophyceae): A buoyant southern bull-kelp species endemic to New Zealand

One of these, which has previously been recognised as genetically, morphologically and ecologically distinct (the 'cape' lineage of D. antarctica, endemic to the New Zealand region), is here described, and named Durvillaea poha sp. nov.
