Thin-layer chromatographic procedures using silica gel and glucose have been employed for the examination of the pigments of twenty-three species of marine phytoplankton, drawn from a number of classes. Several new xanthophylls have been found including one similar to fucoxanthin which is the principal pigment in an, as yet, undescribed member of the Haptophyceae. The pigment array of a species of Olisthodiscus sp. (Plymouth no. 239) differs considerably from thatof members of the Xanthophyceae and this species is probably incorrectly classified.
