Minimal description: "Cresce serpeggiando sovra il Nemalion lubricum che talvolta intieramente riveste. Dubitai da principio potesse riferirsi alla P subtilis, De Not, ma dietro esemplari di quest'ultima favoritimi dall'amicissimo G. Agardh ho potuto convincermi essere la mia specie bene distinta da quella del ch. De Notaris." [It grows snaking over the Nemalion lubricum that sometimes clutches. I doubted I could refer to the P subtilis, De Not, but behind the latter's favored by the very good G. Agardh I could convince myself to be my species well distinguished from that of De Notaris.] - (13 Dec 2015) - M.D. Guiry
