The type species (holotype) of the genus Polysiphonia is Polysiphonia urceolata (Lightfoot ex Dillwyn) Greville.
Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Polysiphonia curta Montagne
No synonyms are currently included in AlgaeBase.
Montagne (1843: 310) includes this name in the synonymy of Polysiphonia curta Montage as follows: "SYN. Polysiphonia polymorpha Montag. Fl. Boliv., p. 20 , non Grev.". However, on p. 20 of Pl. Boliv. is Polysiphonia fastigiata Greville with various synonyms with the epipthet "polymorpha" or "polymorphum". This is thus an invalid name dating from 1843; but in any case the binomial Polysiphonia polymorpha was used earlier by Duby. - (22 Feb 2012) - M.D. Guiry
