Synonym of Cryptopleura ramosa (Hudson) L. Newton or Acrosorium ciliolatum (Harvey) Kylin ? - (23 Jan 2009) - Wendy Guiry

According to Maggs & Hommersand (1993: 255), Acrosorium uncinatum sensu Kylin (1924: 77) [non Fucus laceratus var. uncinatus Turner (1808: 68) is a synonym of Acrosorium venulosum (Zanardini) Kylin (1924: 77). In Index Nominum Algarum Fucus laceratus var. uncinatus Turner is cited as basionym of Acrosorium uncinatum (Turner) Kylin 1924. - (23 Jan 2009) - Wendy Guiry

Most descriptions under Acrosorium vunulosum or A. uncinatum state "gametophyes unknown". However, a few southern Australian collections (e.g. AD, A31152) with typical uncinate branches and agreeing well with this species, do bear cystocarps, and the description" (given by Womersley 2003) "of female stages is based on these (Womersley 2003: 133). - (26 Jan 2009) - Wendy Guiry
