Taxonomic notes
Wilks & Woelkerling (1995: 561) note that all plants in the holotype collection are sterile, and thus the status and disposition of the taxon are uncertain. Basso et al. (2011) re-describe Lithothamnion crispatum, based on the discovery of empty tetra/bisporangial conceptacles in the lectotype material as well as on additional material collected from the Mediterranean Sea. - (30 Mar 2011) - Wendy Guiry

Distributional notes
According to Wilks & Woelkerling (1995: 561), the southern Australian record is based on a single collection of Heydrich (1901b: 540) that Foslie (1901b) later described as Lithothamnion engelhartii f. pseudocrispata. - (27 Mar 2009) - Wendy Guiry

General environment
This is a marine species.

Description
Basso et al. (2011) re-describe Lithothamnion crispatum, based on the discovery of empty tetra/bisporangial conceptacles in the lectotype material as well as on additional material collected from the Mediterranean Sea.

Type information
Type locality: Rovigno, Adriatic Sea (Woelkerling 1998: 338). Lectotype: L 943.7-75 (Woelkerling & Verheij 1995: 44). Notes: Isolectotypes: PC, Thuret-Bornet Herbarium (box collection, filed under Lithothamnion crispatum; TRH, two unnumbered collections one of which includes slide 56 (both collections filed in TRH drawer B-16). Collected by F. Hauck (Wilks & Woelkerling 1995: 560). Basso et al. (2011: 145) note that this was originally described from material collected in the northern Adriatic Sea at 25 m depth (Hauck 1878) and that there are illustrations of the type material in Cabioch & Mendoza 1998: 218, figs 28-29.
