Type species
This is the type species (lectotype) of the genus Halymenia.

Status of name
This name is of an entity that is currently accepted taxonomically.

Basionym
Fucus floresii Clemente Y Rubio

Type information
Type locality: Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Cádiz, Spain (Silva, Basson & Moe 1996: 198). Type: Rojas Clemente y Rubio; MA MA-Algae 1832 (Rodríguez-Prieto et al. 2018: 522). Notes: Collector: Don Francisco Flores (INA)

Homotypic Synonym(s)
Fucus floresii Clemente Y Rubio 1807

Nomenclatural notes
The protologue for the basionym includes "D. Francisco Flores hanc speciem dicare volui, fucorum Luciferifani indagatori diligentissimo acutissimoque." Thus the species is named to honour this person and the epithet should accordingly be "floresii" not "floresia" as commonly in the literature (Guiry, Schneider and Wynne, e-mail communications May 2002).

Taxonomic notes
Using COI-5P barcoding, Schneider et al. (2010) found that Bermuda specimens previously attributable to Halymenia floresii were part of a morphologically variable species with a type locality in the islands, H. pseudofloresii Collins et M. Howe. Because narrow specimens from Bermuda were morphologically identical to European specimens of its sister taxon, the generitype H. floresii, yet distinct molecularly, Schneider et al. (2010) questioned all collections of the latter species from the western Atlantic until they are confirmed by molecular comparisons with eastern Atlantic isolates. - (18 May 2010) - M.D. Guiry
