some fungal endophytes of algae that i've heard of:

Blodgettia bornetti grows in the walls of tropical Cladophora (ulvos)

Mycosphaerella ascophylli is a symbiont of Ascophyllum nodosum (phaeo) the algae will not develop without the fungus! the fungus grows between the cells and reproduces asexually there.

hmm i just moved to the atlantic coast and A. nodosum is all over the place. I should grab me a sprig and get it under the microscope and see if i can find this little boogers!

Tugidosculum ulvae infects Ulva vexata.
