We describe here a new algal taxon observed in Tournaisian rocks of the Horton Group, Nova Scotia. The thallus morphology suggests an udoteacean, but the central medullary tubes are divided by septiform processes, a character normally associated with the Rhodophyta. Hortonella is also recognized in Visean strata of Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Alberta, and Algeria.
