These specimens are Oscillatoria bonnemaisonii (P.Crouan & H.Crouan) P.Crouan & H.Crouan, Microcoleus chthonoplastes Thuret (Oscillatoriales) and Dichothrix spiralis Fritsch (Nostocales). They were determined to be epiphytic on the other algae which were found at the upper-infralittoral zone of the bay of İskenderun (Mediterranean Sea, Turkey).
