    Seaweeds in the offshore waters of Isla Mujeres, in the western Caribbean Sea on the east coast of the Yucat√°n peninsula, were sampled using SCUBA. Three species of Cyanophyta, 90 Rhodophyta, 21 Ochrophyta and 41 Chlorophyta were identified. New records and earlier accounts of the shallow-water flora around the island indicate a rich flora of 400 taxa. Five localities around the island were sampled and each had a distinctive community of seaweeds. Over two-thirds (104) of the 155 tax identified were present at only one of the five localities, and only one species was present in all five localities.
