Strain JAW4874 (field collection number 416) was from a white plastic bottle found in debris of the Mar 11, 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, obtained on Nov 5, 2015 on the Long Beach Peninsula, Washington, USA (46°37.385 N, 124°04.246 W) by Russ Lewis (Table 1). Isotype culture specimens were also deposited in the University of Michigan Herbarium (MICH 701751) and University Herbarium, University of California, Berkeley (UC 2050560). It was not possible to designate a single alga in the field collection as the type. Consequently, a single thallus was reisolated from the laboratory culture in Melbourne and selected as the holotype and isotypes. Culture deposit. The culture (JAW4874) has been accessioned (CCMP 3460) by the Provasoli-Guillard National Center for Marine Algae and Microbiota (NCMA), Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences, P.O.
