    In Bali there are several types of seaweed that has long been used as a source of food by people. These seaweed local name are Bulung Boni (Caulerpa spp.) and Bulung Sangu (Gracilaria spp.). However the study of total carotenoids content and types of carotenoids of these seaweed are very limited, therefore need to be further sudy. The types of carotenoids in this study identified based on the retention of value (Rf) on thin layer chromatography. This research concluded that total carotenoids of Bulung Boni (Caulerpa spp.) higher than Bulung Sangu (Gracilaria spp.). Total carotenoids were 57.734 mg / 100 g in Bulung Boni, and 1.776 mg /100 g in Bulung Sangu. The separation of carotenoids Bulung Boni and Bulung Sangu on thin layer chromatography obtained several types of carotenoids. Based on the calculation Rf values on Bulung Boni found as many as nine types of carotenoids such as neoxanthin, astaxanthin free, antheraxanthin ,canthaxanthin ,astaxanthin monoester, fucoxanthin, chlorophyll b, astaxanthin diester, and beta carotene In Bulung Sangu found eight types of carotenoids, such as neoxanthin, violaxanthin, astaxanthin free, antheraxanthin, lutein, chlorophyll b, chlorophyll a, and beta carotene
