Abstract

The endofauna of the green algae Chladophoropsis vaucheriaformis (Aresch.) Papenf. was examined. This algae is associated with sponge tissue and has a rough, spongious thallus morphology. Twenty thalli were sampled in shallow wates of 1-9 m near Amity Point, North Stadbroke Island, of which five samples were found to be inhabited by large numbers of sphaeromatid isopods belonging to the species Oxinasphaera lobivia, Bruce 1997. This is the first time assemblages of the isopod O. lobivia are reported in association with the algal-sponge association Cladophoropsis vaucheriaformis.
