Type species
The type species (lectotype) of the genus Halymenia is Halymenia floresii (Clemente) C.Agardh.

Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.

Synonym(s)

Nomenclatural notes
As the epithet referred to is “floresii” not “floresia” (see note under Halymenia floresii, this name should be corrected to “pseudofloresii” .

Taxonomic notes
Using COI-5P barcoding, Schneider et al. (2010) found that H. pseudofloresii Collins & M. Howe from its type locality (Bermuda) was a morphologically variable species that included specimens previously attributable to H. floresii in the islands. They showed that H. pseudofloresii grouped with specimens of the generitype H. floresii from near its type locality in Spain using LSU and EF2 alignments. - (18 May 2010) - M.D. Guiry
