Some authors cite Delesseria sanguinea var. lancifolia J.D.Hooker & Harvey as the basionym of this name, but M.J. Wynne (e-mail, 8 October 2011), writes: "... J. Agardh (1872) listed "Delesseria sanguine var. lancifolia" with a query and because of that query, it can't be treated as the basionym. There are two different type specimens involved, one for each name, if one is not the basionyn of the other." - (9 Oct 2011) - M.D. Guiry
This is a marine species.
