Type information
Type locality: Spitsbergen (Athanasiadis 1996: 214). Lectotype: LD [herb. alg. Agardh] 2013 (Longtin & Saunders 2015: 445). Notes: Lontin & Saunders (2014: 445) rejected the selection of LD [herb alg. Agardh] 2010 by Wilce and replaced it with LD [herb alg. Agardh] 2013. Art 9.19 [Melbourne Code] clearly specifies "The author who first designates (Art. 7.9 and 7.10) a lectotype or a neotype in conformity with Art. 9.11-13 must be followed, but that choice is superseded if (a) the holotype or, in the case of a neotype, any of the original material is rediscovered; the choice may also be superseded if one can show that (b) it is in serious conflict with the protologue and another element is available that is not in conflict with the protologue, or that (c) it is contrary to Art. 9.14."
