Holotype species: Antarcticophyllum aequabile (Foslie) M.L.Mendoza

Currently accepted name for the type species: Clathromorphum obtectulum (Foslie) W.H.Adey

Original publication and holotype designation: Mendoza, M.L. (1976). Antarcticophyllum, a new genus of Corallinaceae. Boletin de la Sociedad Argentina de Botánica 17: 252-261.

Precise date of publication1976 (more precise date not determined).

Taxonomic status: currently regarded as a synonym of Clathromorphum.

Most recent taxonomic treatment adopted: Schneider, C.W. & Wynne, M.J. (2007). A synoptic review of the classification of red algal genera a half a century after Kylin's "Die Gattungen der Rhodophyceen". Botanica Marina 50: 197-249.

Comments: Mendoza (1976: 254) established Antarcticophyllum for A. aequabile (Foslie) M.L. Mendoza and A. subantarcticum (Foslie) M.L. Mendoza and designated A. aequabile as type species. A. aequabile was first described as Lithophyllum discoideum f. aequabile Foslie (Foslie 1905: 17) but then raised to species rank [i.e. Lithophyllum aequabile (Foslie) Foslie (Foslie1906: 22)]. Subsequently, Lemoine (1913: 38) established Lithophyllum subgenus Antarcticophyllum Lemoine for L. aequabile and L. subantarcticum (Foslie) Foslie.

In elevating Antarcticophyllum to generic rank, Mendoza (1976: 254) retained the same two species included by Lemoine. Later, however, Mendoza & Cabioch (1985) concluded from a study of relevant types that A. aequabile (Holotype: TRH, A9-437 — see Woelkerling et al. 2005: 71 under Lithophyllum aequabile) was a heterotypic synonym of Clathromorphum obteculum (Foslie) Adey [Lectotype: TRH, B15-2364 — see Woelkerling et al. 2005: 316 under Lithothamnion obteculum (lectotype designated by Adey in Adey & Lebednik 1967: 64)], and that therefore the genus Antarcticophyllum was a heterotypic synonym of Clathromorphum.
