Nomenclatural notes
cf. Thuret & Bornet 1878, as U. lactuca (Index Nominum Algaruam). Lipkin & Silva (2002: 54) note that Foyn (1955) cited differences between U. lactuca plants of the Mediterranean and southern European Atlantic coasts and those of England and northern European Atlantic coasts and that he suggested the name U. thuretii for the former. However, this name is invalid since he failed to provide a Latin description or designate a type specimen. - (16 Jun 2010) - Wendy Guiry

Taxonomic notes
According to Lipkin & Silva (2002: 54), Bliding (1969: 554) showed that U. thuretii Foyn is conspecific with U. rigida C. Agardh. - (16 Jun 2010) - Wendy Guiry
