Silva, Basson & Moe (1996) note: "Aegagropila javanica was based on a collection by Zollinger (no. 2379). On transferring the name to Cladophora, Kützing was obligated to change the epithet because of the existence of Cladophora javanica Kützing (1847b: 773), a freshwater species also collected by Zollinger (no. 2479a). When the species is transferred to Siphonocladus or Cladophoropsis or returned to Aegagropila, however, the original epithet must be restored." - (15 Feb 2017) - M.D. Guiry
This is a marine species.
