Publication details
Pterocladia melanoidea (Schousboe ex Bornet) E.Y.Dawson 1962

Published in: Dawson, E.Y. (1962). Additions to the marine flora of Costa Rica and Nicaragua. Pacific Naturalist 3: 375-395.

Type species
The type species (holotype) of the genus Pterocladia is Pterocladia lucida (R.Brown ex Turner) J.Agardh.

Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Pterocladiella melanoidea (Schousboe ex Bornet) Santelices & Hommersand

Basionym
Gelidium melanoideum Schousboe ex Bornet

Type information
Type locality: Tangier, Morocco (Bornet 1892: 269). Notes: Alg. Schousb. nos 376, 377

Synonym(s)
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.

Taxonomic notes
According to Santelices (1999), Pterocladiella melanoidea is the valid name for the European material (Frederiksen & Rueness (1990)). The Costa Rican specimens (Dawson (1962)) await additional analysis. Without evidence of fertile female thalli, these specimens cannot be assigned to Gelidium, Pterocladia or Pterocladiella.

General environment
This is a marine species.
