Few studies have reported on the genus Ceramium Roth in the Philippines. Further complicating the matter, genus Gayliella was recently proposed to accommodate the Ceramium flaccidum complex. Samples were collected in Calatagan, Batangas; Green Island, Roxas, Palawan; Verde Island, Batangas; Bolinao, Pangasinan; and Alabat Island, Quezon. Eleven Ceramium and four Gayliella species were identified among the collections. Six of which, namely, C. aduncum, C. borneense, C. brevizonatum, C. cingulatum, C. deslongchampsii, and C. fujianum are new records for the Philippines.
