The Preliminary Check-list of British Marine Algae (Parke, 1953), with three subsequent lists of additions and corrections (Parke, 1956,1957,1959), was superseded by the Revised Check-list of British Marine Algae (Parke & Dixon, 1964) and the Check-list of British Marine Algae - Second Revision (Parke & Dixon, 1968). Since the publication of the 1968 list, changes, both taxonomic and systematic, have been sufficiently numerous to warrant the present list incorporating further additions, corrections and emendations.
