Nomenclatural notes
Díaz-Tapia (2017: 23) write: "Polysiphonia sertularioides was transferred to Neosiphonia based on the morphology of Korean material attributed to this species (Nam & Kang, 2012). However, its type locality is in the Mediterranean, and Atlantic sequences for this species are not in the Fernandosiphonia clade (Fig. 1; Mamoozadeh & Freshwater, 2012)." - (3 Feb 2017) - M.D. Guiry

Taxonomic notes
? Polysiphonia flaccidissima Hollenberg 1942 (Womersley 2003: 184). - (28 Jan 2009) - Wendy Guiry

General environment
This is a marine species.

Habitat
Usually just above or below low tide level on rough-water coasts (Womersley 2003: 186).
